Bachelor of Business Administration in Information Systems

From the Server Room to the Boardroom

The first computers were the size of an average living room. Today, the average mobile phone has more computing power than NASA used to send the first space shuttle to the moon.

The opportunities and problems brought on by such rapid, relentless technological progress require skilled professionals to lead companies. Information systems involve more than managing a data network; they're about integrating the operations of a corporate system with its products and personnel and directing the growth of a corporation. Be part of the changes that technological innovations are creating across all industries with Medaille's Bachelor of Business Administration in Information Systems (BBA-IS) online degree program.
