Business Information Systems

Organizations increasingly seek to recognize the opportunities and risks of what has been called the next industrial revolution - digital transformation. How can executives understand and leverage the rapidly changing technologies of social media, the internet of things, mixed reality, blockchain and analytics tools? With the collaborative insight and support of IT executives, we have designed our curriculum to prepare our BIS students to successfully participate in and ultimately lead the projects designed to engage customers, enhance products, streamline processes, and provide new services enabled by new technologies. Students learn to analyze the business, to design and develop techniques, and to analyze data, leading to the capstone where students combine their experiences to take a real-world project. Our BIS graduates then apply this experience in joining consulting practices, technology firms, and technology departments to start their careers.
