Specifically designed to address this issue, the MS in Business and Information Systems is primarily for students who want to prepare for careers where they will do requirements analysis and application systems design and development, as well as use, analyze and evaluate computing applications and systems in a business environment. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics points to very strong need for managers with technical skills well into the next decade.
The MS in Business and Information Systems teaches students concepts in both business and information systems. The focus of the degree is on the application of computing and information systems in business, government, and non-profit organizations.
Besides learning about information systems topics such as databases, application development tools, web design, software use and evaluation, management information and decision support systems, students will learn business topics such as accounting, finance, financial products, and business operations.
