BS in International Business (BSIB) degree has offered a unique program to undergraduate business students: integrated learning through academic and experiential opportunities. The BSIB Program immerses students in a foreign culture to experience the academic, professional and personal components of the global marketplace. In the global information age, success for individuals and for companies requires the ability to manage information effectively. To that end, the goal of the information management concentration is to teach future managers how to use information systems (IS) and information technology (IT) to help organizations and individuals perform more efficiently and effectively. This can lead the student in two career directions: To become a professional in the IS function of a company or in an IS consulting company; to accelerate and enhance a career in another functional area such as accounting, finance, marketing, etc. Understanding how to get the right information in the right form and format to the right people at the right time is essential in today’s business world, especially when companies and the individuals that do this well are achieving significant competitive advantage. Students have an opportunity to develop new, cutting-edge approaches that allow them to use the powerful resource of information to its greatest advantage. They also have the opportunity to develop technical and problem-solving skills that are in high demand by employers. Managers in the IS function need to interact frequently with other managers throughout an organization. Therefore, students are encouraged to complete a dual concentration in information management and another area of business. Graduates of this program have a wide range of career paths that suit their particular interests. Professional options include business/systems analyst, database designer and administrator, webmaster, software help-desk expert, project specialist, consultant, network administrator, and IT specialist within other departments, such as financial services, accounting, marketing, or manufacturing.
