+ 0 Votes MIS is not M of IS but IS for M john.a.wills September 10, 2013 at 10:56am PST So MIS may not give you the step you seek to management. You do not have a fork in your career in which you choose between a management path and something else but between two something-elses. However, I suspect that MIS would give you a greater feel for management structure than CNS. Both MIS and CNS involve some graph theory, I suppose the latter more. Does graph theory give more insight into business than data structure? I doubt it. So I recommend MIS, but not for the reason you associate with it. Your Associateship in Business Management should help even if it is not recognized by hirers.
