Program Information

Students enrolled in the Accelerated BBA/BS and MSITM program must complete either the Business Analytics or Information Security concentration for the undergraduate degree. Students who pursue the Business Analytics concentration must take either Social Media and Web Analytics (ISM 4420) or Contemporary Issues in Digital Data Management (ISM 4041) instead of Advanced Business Analytics (ISM 4403). This is because Advanced Business Analytics (ISM 6405) is a required course in the MSITM program coursework.

In addition, for all Accelerated program students, Advanced Business Analytics (ISM 6405) may be used to fulfill the required B.B.A. or B.S. 120 degree credits. This course will substitute ISM 4403.

Please see below for the recommended course sequence for each concentration, as well as the recommended sequence for graduate coursework.
