Return to Degree Programs Return to: Degree Programs

The Information Technology for Business program enables our students to learn two languages, the language of business and the language of information systems.  The interdisciplinary blend of technology and business courses ensures our students learn both the skills required for the technical and business aspects of the job, as well as the critical thinking and analytical skills required to excel.  Students will take classes in subjects such as programming, database management, networking and security, web development, business law, project management, and accounting.

Career and Graduate Study Options

Students with a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology for Business can pursue jobs such as database administrators, computer network architects, information security analysts, computer systems analysts, or network systems administrators, or continue on to graduate degrees in management or technology.  Students also have the option to apply to Mount Ida’s 4 + 1 Accelerated Master’s Program and earn both an undergraduate degree and a Master of Science in Management degree in 5 years.
