A choice from ten business majors will add to the in-depth knowledge and equip students with the skills to pursue a career in a chosen area of interest. Students' knowledge is augmented with study in the Information Systems domain including, but not limited to, system analysis and design, information systems, programing, database design and development, networking, system deployment and management, web and mobile development and social computing.
