STEM + Business = Opportunity. Gain skills and expertise in computing and business that can open doors throughout your career.

To develop software and information systems that help a company reach its goals, you need first-rate technical knowledge and skills. To advance professionally, it’s also important to understand the larger context of how businesses work—the fundamental business concepts and terminology, how managers measure results and make decisions, and how companies operate to be competitive and profitable in the marketplace.

In this dual-degree program’s integrated curriculum of computing and business, students develop sophisticated computing and analytical skills as well as a solid background in business. This powerful combination gives you the knowledge and tools to apply and manage leading-edge digital technology and move your career forward at companies ranging from startups to multinational corporations.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems program emphasizes the use of computing for complex problem-solving across disciplines. Courses are designed to build a firm foundation in computer science and include labs in which you build your analytical and software development skills, preparing you to work independently in the classroom and on the job.

Courses are taught with an applied, practical approach to build your understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of management in today’s competitive global economy.
