Today's competitive business environment requires technologies that provide the strategic edge to build market share and that enable business operations to run at maximum efficiency. The information systems majors provide the technical and managerial skills that support these goals. Two degree programs are offered: the Master of Business Administration in information systems and the Master of Science in Business Information Systems.

The MBA is a broad-based business program, offering the student a spectrum of general business courses. The four course major in information systems provides students with the concepts, strategies, and techniques necessary for this dynamic field. The program focuses on technologies, such as database management systems and telecommunications, as well as IT management and strategy in areas such as information technology in the financial markets and e-business.
