Program Overview

Programmers and developers are inpiduals who have spent their entire careers focusing on how to accomplish a project using computers and computer networks. The amount of specialization required in order to be a programmer means that ordinary inpiduals typically do not see eye-to-eye with programmers and developers. As a result, management typically assigns inpiduals to act as an intermediary between developers and the people running the business. These people do not necessarily have the programming and development knowledge and experience of a programmer, but their increased knowledge of programming complements their understanding of business processes for a unique position in a company.

Florida Tech University has an educational path for these positions with the Bachelor in Arts in Business Administration with a Specialization in Computer Information Systems degree program. The program is designed to be able to be fulfilled entirely online, providing a large degree of flexibility to students who normally would not be able or willing to attend a traditional college setting. BA Business Admin CIS degrees are structured around a liberal arts background to focus on the processes of business as well as computer information system education.

Business Administration students specializing in Computer Information Systems can expect to learn the disciplines of management, specifically planning, strategy, and organization but will also learn to improve quality and productivity of systems by streamlining hardware and processes, as well as developing understanding of operations of an actual network. Students will gain the benefit of experience in communicating business decisions and monitoring and understanding various software systems and determine features, advantages and disadvantages during the development of computer information systems.
