The Department of Business and Information Technology features the University's undergraduate degrees in Business and Management Systems and Information Science and Technology as well as a Master of Science in Information Science and Technology (MS in IST), and Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs. These popular programs combine two of the factors most critical to a successful organization: knowledge of business disciplines and information technology expertise. The Business and Management Systems program is designed for students who who may have an entrepreneurial flare and/or wish to work in a fast-paced business environment, while the Information Science and Technology program is for students interested in working with solving business and management problems using information technology resources. Another innovation in a forward-thinking department, the Department of Business and Information Technology's MBA is offered completely online using state-of-the-art distance technology classrooms. The distance model allows students to choose to interact directly with professors and fellow classmates during a lecture or view materials at a later time asynchronously. Top undergraduate students have the opportunity to dual enroll in graduate school for either the MBA or the MS in IST.
