The program in information systems recognizes information as a valuable corporate resource which, when properly managed by organizations, can give them a definite competitive advantage. Accordingly, the principal objective of the IS program is to develop the skill set necessary to analyze, design and evaluate an organization's information technology systems. To this end, courses in the program present technical, economic, and behavioral dimensions of computer-based information systems whose purpose is to support a firm's information and decision technology infrastructure. Throughout the program there is a great emphasis placed on "hands on," project-related work using a variety of applications development tools.
The department conducts a credit-bearing internship program with a select group of institutions in which students are expected to take part in projects and organizational decision-making. Each semester invitations are extended to a limited number of students selected from among those who have demonstrated high academic achievement.
