The BIS major has a skill set for entry-level positions such as: business analyst, programmer/analyst, or software developer/implementer positions. The BIS graduate's understanding of the business enterprise and its functional areas opens employment opportunities not only in an organization's information systems department, but also in functional areas of business.
Our Business Information Systems faculty focus on collaborative use of programming software to solve business problems. To facilitate this goal, a special lab was created to provide both advanced computer support for each student combined with table configurations that assist in systems development by small groups. Students work to develop a combination of programming expertise and critical thinking to match software solutions with business needs.
