Information systems are the lifeblood of the modern enterprise, making up the single largest portion of capital spending among U.S. corporations. They have the power to create and restructure industries, empower individuals and firms, and dramatically reduce costs. As a result, organizations desperately need well-trained information systems specialists and technology-savvy managers. Today’s managers simply cannot effectively perform without a solid understanding of the role of information systems in organizations, competition, and society.
The Information Systems Department in the Carroll School of Management is committed to providing undergraduate and graduate students with the knowledge and skills required to plan, develop, and deploy technology-based business solutions. Students are equipped with a solid understanding of the strategic role of information systems in organizations and the influential role of technology in society.
