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. Accountants increasingly spend considerable time working with technology. Modern accounting is enabled by information systems, and complex audits in forensic accounting can often involve tracking and interpreting information flows across various systems and technologies. As such, a program of study integrating information systems and accounting helps students develop a high-demand skill set. Students fulfilling this concentration will satisfy all of the requirements for the IS concentration and also obtain a background in accounting. The curriculum entails six (6) courses (five [5] required and one [1] Accounting elective) and is designed for students interested in careers either with the consulting divisions of professional services firms (e.g., major accounting firms), IS departments of companies, or as IS auditors. Students are advised to see a faculty advisor in selecting an appropriate Accounting elective. This concentration is administered jointly by the Accounting Department and the Information Systems Department.
