Business Computer Information Systems

We are all inundated with technology daily, but do we really know what technologies best serve us? Instead of only learning how technology works, BCIS students learn what types of technology should be used, as well as when and where it can best benefit an organization. BCIS graduates use their knowledge of information systems and business to analyze situations, develop solutions to problems, and provide recommendations of technologies for new opportunities. BCIS graduates are capable of developing solutions for web, windows, and mobile environments, and they work in many industries throughout the world.
