Management of Information Technologies

Modern digital enterprises have created a strong demand for individuals who understand the contributions of information technologies to their success in a rapidly changing economic landscape that is global in scope. This unique minor meets this demand by addressing the needs of two distinct groups of students: (1) those with a strong background in computing or engineering (non-business majors) who need a firm grasp of important business concepts and practices and (2) business students who need a solid foundation in computing or engineering technologies.

The first group consists of students with a strong background in computing or engineering (non-business majors) who need a firm grasp of important business concepts and practices. The business courses they will take have been carefully selected to provide knowledge in the key aspects of the functions in a business enterprise. The addition to their technical skills of this insight into business will enable these students to be capable of filling a broad array of technical positions in any firm involved with computing, information, and digital technologies.

The second group comprises business students (students not in the College of Engineering and Computing) who need a solid foundation in computing or engineering technologies. The minor provides for courses in these areas along three separate tracks: a computer science track (for MIS majors only), a computer engineering track; and an electrical engineering track. These students can aspire to occupying a wide range of managerial positions that require knowledge of business processes as well as computing and digital technologies.
