Managers and non-managers alike depend upon information for decision making. To be useful that information must be understandable, timely, thorough, focused on the decision at hand, and in the hands of the appropriate individual. Accomplishing all this is the challenge of Business Information and Technology. It requires a knowledge of individual and/or group behavior, the process of perception (how people select and interpret information), the decision tools they need, computers and communication technology, systems design, managing data, and the impact individual decisions have on the organization.
Program objectives for a B.B.A. in Business Information and Technology are found here.
Business Information and Technology includes several specialized areas including Telecommunications, Information Systems, Management and Planning, Statistics, System Development, Data Base Management, and general applications of computers to business.
Many Business Information and Technology courses require substantial hands-on experience in computer labs. Therefore, the department does not allow credit by examination for upper division courses.
