Information Systems and Analytics

About this Department

In today’s information age, managers rely on computer-generated information as critical resources in the decision-making process. And, organizations are seeking to harness the power and abundance of data to stay competitive.

We offer a Bachelor of Science in Data Science, which serves as preparation for a career in data science, an emerging field. Students may also choose a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a Concentration in Information Systems, a course of study designed to meet professional opportunities in the information systems and technology field. A minor in Information Systems is offered as well.

Whether students pursue a focus on solving problems with data or developing systems that meet company goals, they’ll gain cutting-edge skills and knowledge—and prepare to become decision-makers and solution drivers in a constantly evolving field.
