M.S. Business and Information Systems

Business and Information Systems provides a broad, technical and managerial understanding of Information Systems, including database, system design and IS strategy.

Summary

Computer science and business management are two popular graduate programs, and many people have a hard time choosing which one to study. The Business and Information Systems program allows you to study both. You will learn both computing science and business management, which will make you more marketable. Corporations are eager to hire students who have technical and managerial skills. Being well rounded will help you get promotions and, if you like, to become a manager. 

Students will learn a wide range of leadership and management skills in addition to understanding and adapting to the rapid changes in the Information Technology field, such as analysis, design and programming, which have become "object-oriented," as Information Systems are impacted by concerns for privacy, ethics, intellectual property and compliance issues.
