Abstract: This study investigated the problems encountered in the use of Management Information System (MIS) in the South-West Nigerian Universities. The study used the descriptive research design of the survey type. Data were collected from a sample of 600 subjects consisting of 400 academic staff holding administrative positions and 200 senior administrative staff heading units using stratified random sampling techniques. Data collected were analysed using frequency counts, percentages, means, standard deviation and t-test statistics. The hypothesis formulated was tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed four predominant problems of MIS which include: Poor communication network; inadequate funding of the MIS units; inadequate MIS facilities and inadequate literacy in computer by the key university officers. The result of the hypothesis tested showed significant difference in the problems of MIS between the Federal and State universities in favour of the Federal universities. It was recommended that substantial amount of money be allocated by government to MIS units in the universities on yearly basis; more network services should be made operational in all the universities and all the universities should be linked to internet. State universities should be more funded to make them compete favourably with Federal universities in terms of availability and utilisation of MIS facilities.
