Undergraduate business students opting to pursue a BBA in Information Systems (IS) will gain a solid foundation in the design, use, and management of databases, enterprise systems, information security and telecommunications technology. The IS program provides students with the background needed to give informational support for decision-making through business analytics and to understand complex project management initiatives.

Graduates will be prepared for entry-level positions in the information systems field, either in user- or system-oriented departments.

Because of the great variety of IS application areas and technical specialties, there are numerous career choices available, including systems analysts, software engineers, business analysts and information technology specialists. Computer and information systems managers, often called information technology (IT) managers, or IT project managers, help determine the information technology goals of an organization and are responsible for implementing computer systems to meet those goals. Demand for computer and information systems managers will increase as firms continue to expand their use of wireless and mobile networks.
