In early 1999, on the basis of the concept paper prepared by the Department of Management, the Faculty of Business Studies passed the resolution to establish the Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) and sent the resolution to the University authority for approval.
In late 2004, the University authority approved the proposal and established the Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) and appointed Professor Dr. Abdul Mannan Choudhury as the first Chairman of the Department on April 12, 2005.
Academic programmes at present consists of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Regular Master of Business Administration (MBA), Evening Master of Business Administration (EMBA), Master of Philosophy (M. Phil) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). Students have access to the Dhaka University Central Library and the Faculty of Business Studies library, which keeps primarily business and managementrelated textbooks.
The Department has decided to publish a journal, namely International Journal of Management Information Systems. The department publishes monographs and working papers for developing the MIS as field of study.
