Online MBA Specializations

The Online MBA at Chico State features two specializations for students who have a clearly defined career path in mind and the practical vision to make it a reality. By selecting an MBA specialization in Enterprise Information Systems (also called management information systems) or Project Management, you can prepare yourself for certification exams in each of these fields and to thrive in the roles to which they lead.

Enterprise Information Systems

The Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) specialization is designed to qualify you for a rapidly expanding management information systems role and helps prepare you to take the SAP TS410 certification exam. Build the knowledge and skills that can lead to a role as a professional consultant, business process analyst, IT infrastructure specialist, or SAP functional analyst.

Our management information systems courses have been selected to prepare you to effectively utilize the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and to help you develop a deep understanding of its logic and its role in managing processes and logistics. The EIS specialization not only prepares you to obtain this specific professional credential, but trains you in data management and IT processes and tools that are applicable across numerous different roles. EIS specialization courses cover strategic information systems management, security and privacy issues in IT, business intelligence, and data warehousing.

The EIS specialization sets students up for a pathway to sit for the TS410 certification exam.* Successful completion of the TS410 is a gateway to abundant and lucrative management information systems career opportunities. It demonstrates not only your commitment to business education, but also your desire to go above and beyond a conventional MBA to earn this designation.

Chico State is proud to offer this pathway to a targeted, lucrative career goal.
