Solve business problems with systems and technology.
A background in Information Systems prepares you for a career in almost every industry—in IT management, systems architecture, network engineering, or anything else where people, IT and systems meet.
How is Information Systems different from Computer Science?
Information Systems students learn both computing and management domains while Computer Science students focus on algorithms and software.
