Bachelor of Business Administration in Information Systems

Utilize technology to improve business solutions.

Companies and organizations are more connected than ever--to their employees, customers, vendors, suppliers and each other through technology.

Earning a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems (IS) will challenge and equip you to engage in these efforts. ACU’s curriculum combines business management with technology--the analytical and technical. This combination prepares you to manage systems and analyze data with a deep understanding of how these processes affect organizations at every level. The BS Information Systems program will also develop critical thinking, leadership and communication skills that will help you grow in your career, whether you want to develop software or pursue advanced studies in the field.
