A smart business decision maker understands how to make their organization more profitable and productive through the use of technology. With a BAIS major, you can be that decision maker. Choose between two stream-lined tracks that will open the door to big-time careers where you'll help your company succeed with the power of data.
Tracks in BAIS
The business analytics track gives you the means to vastly improve business processes through data. You'll be introduced to state-of-the-art analytical techniques that will transform you into an expert when it comes to data mining, supply chain operations, and optimization.
The information systems track will allow you to be a go-to for information technology. You'll learn how to work your way around the systems that collect, organize, and secure big data. Completing this track means that you will be a huge element in helping your future company meet its process goals and challenges.
Like both tracks? Choose one and (unofficially) double-major in business analytics AND information systems by completing courses from both track—it will make you even more marketable to a future employer.
