Business Information Technology Web Site

The faculty of the Business Information Technology department is interested in the relationship between computing and business. We teach courses in several degree programs and work with several affiliated groups in our efforts to maintain contacts with students and industry.

Our programs

We have a variety of classes for BBAs and MBAs ranging from hands-on and development type classes to analytical and strategy-level classes. Our PhD students use a variety of approaches (economic, behavioral, & computational) in different types of problem domains (e-commerce, software development, & supply chain among others). The faculty lead this research and conduct additional research of their own in many other areas (information retrieval, human/computer interface, and many others).
