B.S. Integrated Technology - Computer Information Systems/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 Computer Information Systems concentration focuses on the experiential learning model to prepare students for a wide variety of positions within the Integrated Technology (IT) field. IT professionals are responsible for not only maintaining and securing existing equipment and data, but also assessing, recommending, and implementing new technology throughout the organization. In completing the B.S. IT - CIS degree, students will be expected to solve business problems using critical thinking skills, become effective business and technology communicators, obtain proficiency in developing and delivering  IT solutions, and obtain strong ethical awareness within the context of business. Students will also need to meet the program objectives of the MBA program.
