B.S. Integrated Technology - Web Design and Development/M.B.A.

The dual bachelor’s degree in IT and Master of Business Administration program advances an undergraduate/graduate integrated technology and management curriculum.  It combines the technical skills from the undergraduate integrated technology classes with the management and leadership skills of the graduate program.  Students in this dual BS/MBA program may earn both degrees in as few as 5 years.

The Web Design and Development concentration prepares students to develop and maintain the web-based presence for an organization.  This includes the ability to design, develop, and maintain both static and dynamic content web sites.  In pursuing the B.S. IT - Web Development and Design/MBA degree, students will be expected to solve business problems using critical thinking skills, become effective business and technology communicators, become proficient in developing and delivering IT web-based solutions, and develop a strong ethical awareness within the context of business. Students will also need to meet the program objectives of the MBA program.
