Knowledge about information systems is essential for creating successful, competitive firms, managing global corporations, adding business value, and providing useful products and services to customers. Leaders must know how information systems support decision making, problem solving, operations, and process improvement, and how they enhance collaboration, team process, and communication. Students gain an understanding of how organizations use information technology to manage their activities and achieve their goals, and how they manage operational and strategic roles and trade-offs of information systems and technologies.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
