Learn Business, Use Technology
IS professionals know technology, but they must also understand business. Through our nationally recognized Integrated Business Curriculum, students gain valuable practical knowledge and experience in information systems as well as management, marketing, finance, operations and other business functions.
As an IS student, you will learn how to design and manage secure, reliable computer systems that help businesses operate efficiently and allow people and companies to exchange and store all types of information. You will study software and hardware systems, telecommunications, data resources, IS administration and more.
Students who graduate with a degree in B.S. Business in Information Systems will complete 120 required credits toward the degree in addition to U-Idaho core requirements. Download the Information Systems sample major sequence for the requirements for this degree.
If you are interested in using technology to improve lives, then a career in information systems (IS) is a good choice. IS professionals are skilled problem solvers, analytical thinkers, team players, tolerant of ambiguity and excellent communicators. You must like a challenge, think outside the box and be eager to research and develop new solutions. If you're interested in an IS degree, prepare in high school with related courses in technology, computers and business.
