Bachelor’s Degree (BBA) in Computer Information and Systems Science

Nowadays, the backbone of a business is its technological infrastructure. Databases, software applications, networks—these are the components comprising the systems that not only make a business go, but help it succeed. Finance, human relations, procurement, marketing—all areas of business are driven by information systems that help managers make smart, informed business decisions.

But much like these systems are changing the way we do business, the systems themselves are in constant flux. The individuals charged with managing information systems must thrive on learning and change, eager to adapt in order to stay ahead.

If you are fascinated by technology and love learning new things, then the bachelor’s degree program in Computer Information and Systems Science at the University of the District of Columbia is a great match for you. Here, you will learn how to manage computer applications in business and governmental organizations, ensuring that these critical systems function in line with organizational goals.
