Programs offered by department: The B.S. in Information Systems and Operations Management (ISOM) is a professional program of the Bryan School of Business and Economics. This program has provided information systems and supply chain management professionals for firms in the Triad, the state, and the nation for over 30 years.
Students completing the B.S program in ISOM pursue one of the two concentrations: Information Systems (IS) or Supply Chain Management (SCM). The two concentrations require a common set of core courses, and courses unique to each concentration.
The Information Systems concentration places emphasis on computer programming, systems development, databases, network management, e-commerce, information security, and web site development. This is the more technical of the two programs, and the one with the highest demand for graduates. Graduates of the program accept positions as web developers, programmers, systems analysts, IT quality analysts, applications developers and database analysts.
The Supply Chain Management concentration prepares students for careers in the procurement, production and distribution of goods and services in a global, technology-driven environment. This preparation includes competencies in business tools, operations management, database language proficiency, and project management. Graduates of this program are hired for a variety of positions ranging from sourcing (purchasing) analysts, materials planners and ERP analysts to supply chain analysts.
Information Technology (IT) Minor: The IT minor is a 15 credit hour program (five 3 semester credit courses) designed for students interested in gaining information technology skills but who are not necessarily interested in pursuing a major or career in information systems. It consists of two required courses in business programming and students choose three electives from database, programming, business processes and IT, and project management courses.
