About the Program

More and more companies are challenged with how to make sense of vast amounts of data in order to improve their competitive position and growth. This has generated requirements for professionals with both a business and technology side who understand how to turn insight into action. A critical role in the facilitation of software/system development growth is played by the Information Technology Business Analyst by the gathering of business requirements from several organizational areas and interpreting them so that they can be defined as functional systems design specifications that can be successfully implemented by IT teams. Critical skills will be developed in the following information technology areas: application software, business data analysis and modeling, customer engagement management, business processes, enterprise resource planning, and communications. A key part of this graduate program is the applied aspects of the curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to engage in the process of business analysis for information technology (IT) through case studies and industry-related projects.
