Message from the Chairperson

Welcome to the Department of Business Information Systems and Analytics (BISA)

BISA department offers students the opportunity to become proficient in information technology, information systems, and business analytics. These topics are critical for students to understand since they are integral to the efficient and effective functioning of all organizations and objective data-driven decision making.

Information technology and systems are woven into the foundational infrastructure of any organization, regardless of whether it is a small business or global company. It is also vital that information technology and systems are implemented in a way that supports organizational strategy through the ability to make decisions based on the analysis of data.

Students who major in these fields will need to be lifelong learners since technology is constantly evolving and changing. Current paradigms and frameworks undergo change and new ones come into existence on a regular basis. The goal of the BISA faculty is to assist students in preparing for an ever-changing technology and workforce landscape so that they can adapt and become innovative professionals in the field.

There are many opportunities for careers in these fields. Given the training that BISA majors get in business and technology they can take a variety of roles that are at the intersection of business and technology. Examples include  database management, website developer, IT security expert, network manager, IT business analyst, data analyst, IT sales, etc. 

Our curriculum is designed to challenge you and impart a skill set that the industry values. We expect that to be successful in our programs, students need to be:

  • resilient in overcoming obstacles
  • intellectually and technologically curious
  • detail-oriented and analytical
  • creative and innovative
  • good time managers
  • engaged in coursework (reflect upon and digest the material)
  • mindful of academic integrity
  • willing to seek help when needed

Thank you for exploring our site. Please let us know if you have any questions about how BISA department can be the home for your major.
