What advice would you give other students?
“Network yourself with faculty and students and take advantage of all of the services that the college has to offer. Always network because you never know when faculty or classmates could help to provide job opportunities. Be sure to utilize college services that are available such as Barbara Roback in Career Services, as she can help you appear more attractive as a job candidate.”
Information Technology Management B.B.A.
Using information technology (IT) to help companies deliver tangible results and create business value is absolutely critical in today's business climate. The Information Technology Management B.B.A. degree focuses on both the technology and business skills needed to convert information into business results. A cultural gap often divides the IT Department from the rest of the business. Companies need individuals skilled in the art of converting business needs into IT solutions. People who can manage and communicate effectively between these two cultures are needed to bridge the gap and help insure the success of the company. It is individuals with these unique skill sets that will become the future chief information officers, vice presidents, and directors.
The long-term goal of the Information Technology Management B.B.A. program is to develop individuals with these skills. This program is divided into two major components. The IT component includes project management, systems analysis, programming, and networking and communication concepts. The business component includes marketing, business law, statistics, human resource management, corporate finance, and management communications.
The program includes an internship semester where students will apply what they have learned while advancing their skills and knowledge by working in a real company. Upon graduation, students will be ready to join the leaders in using IT to drive business results, providing new opportunities for the business and themselves.
