The program in Information Systems, offered as an interdisciplinary
collaboration between the Departments of Business and Computer Science,
prepares undergraduate students to enter business with advanced
quantitative skills and a sophisticated understanding of technology. In
addition, it offers an opportunity for professional development for students
who have already started a career. Graduates of the program will be able to
traverse the boundary between management and computer information
technology, and to plan organizational change, advise in the development
of information systems, participate in their implementation, and interpret
analytical and statistical models and data.
Responding to changes in business and technology, the program in
Information Systems is designed to prepare students for careers as systems
analysts, programmers, and designers; data administrators; information
systems consultants; and managers in information technology.
