Decision making requires relevant and authentic information at right time. All our plans will fall through if we do not have timely information. Be it booking a flight ticket or making online purchasing, we bank on information.

An organization will cease to operate if flawless and important information does not reach the employees, especially to the people in higher echelons of the organization. In the late 1960s, more systematic approach to organizing information was felt and MIS (Management Information system) was introduced. With rising demands of MIS professionals in the industry, prestigious institutions like WLCI College offers courses in MIS that may catapult your career in the industry.
