MISA (Management Information Systems Association) is the official club of the MIS major at Western Washington University. It is a critical resource for MIS students by helping them build their professional networks, form strong skill sets and improve resumes to assist in scoring internships and full-time jobs.
If you haven’t heard, a degree in Management Information Systems is a big deal. The technology industry is currently one of the most promising and lucrative fields for graduates and job seekers. We’re talking median salaries averaging $60,000 – $80,000 right out of college – which is on average $14,000 more than other Western graduates. More importantly, MIS graduates love their job for more than just money; the impact, satisfaction, and fun that comes with one of the fastest growing job markets really brings it home for the many possible MIS career paths.
Not only is MISA the official club of the MIS major, it is also a critical resource for MIS students, helping individuals form strong skill sets and impressive resumes when it comes to finding a job or internship. 100% of officers and 80% of members receive internships and jobs within the IT industry before graduation.

If you love the business side to technology and vice-versa, MISA is for you.
