The Information Systems degree bridges the study of business and information systems and is less theoretical than the computer science major. An academic focus is placed on the practical application of technology in support of business operation, management, and decision making. Graduates receive a solid foundation in enterprise computing. Enterprise computing encompasses various types of enterprise software required to support an organization's operations and goals. We are committed to preparing graduates who become productive employees.
