The Department of Business and Economics, jointly with the Mathematics and Computer Science Department, sponsors a Bachelor of Science Degree in Information Systems Management (Computer Science). This program combines courses in computer studies, accounting, business, economics and management. It is designed to train students for careers as software developers, systems analysts, network engineers and administrators, and information scientists. Students will complete courses in three categories. The first consists of courses required of all majors. The second consists of 2 eight-credit tracks, one of which must be completed. The first track is Data Communication and is intended for students interested in networks, data transfer and communication. The second track, Business Technology, is intended for students interested in programming and maintaining software applications. To fulfill the third category, a major will choose three electives.
