Bachelor Programs

The Business Analytics and Information Systems major provides the skills and knowledge necessary for business and data analytics, information systems development and support positions in both business and non-business organizations.

Graduates of the program are in great demand by firms in the information services sector of the economy, software development organizations, management consultants, and MIS departments in industry. An Advisory Board consisting of senior information systems executives and consultants works closely with the department to ensure that the program maintains high standards.

The Business Analytics / Information Systems program is designed for individuals who are challenged by applications of Information Systems and Information Technology and who are willing to undertake a career that demands a broad rather than narrow range of skills. Students who already have considerable background either in information systems or in business coursework will make use of the built-in flexibility of the program, designing programs of study that will provide them with the best background for their careers. An advisor will work closely with each student to design and monitor the most effective course sequence and optional thesis/practicum work.

The major in Management prepares students to manage and lead all aspects of organizations. Mastery of course content enables students to inspire themselves, others, teams, and organizations to coordinate efforts to provide effective outcomes. Content covered includes ethics and virtue, organizational behavior, human resources, domestic and international cultural differences, and negotiating skills. A capstone course integrates the learning objectives of the major in a study of a real company where students demonstrate that they can now apply effectively what they have learned.
