Information Systems and Information Technology

Is Information Systems the right fit for me?

They are concerned with the design and implementation of information systems to support the information processing needs of an organization. Are you fascinated by how modern companies manage their data? Are you interested in both technologies and their applications in business? Companies are in dire need of IS majors, who know both IT and business issues.
