What will I learn?

All disciplines are experiencing growth in computer use, and students who enrich their knowledge of information systems (IS) have a distinct professional advantage. The Information Systems program is designed to serve students with educational and career interests in information systems, as well as those students who have other career and educational interests and who desire knowledge of information systems.

Students majoring in Finance, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Management and Leadership, Business Analytics or Computer Science may pursue a dual major in Information Systems and their primary major. Students majoring in Accounting may pursue a concentration in Information Systems. Information Systems courses tailored for each major enhance the students’ knowledge of their primary business discipline, and integrate the use of information systems and technology with study of the business disciplines.

Where Can Studying Information Systems Take Me?

The IS curriculum uses formal links and cross listings to integrate knowledge across the College, using information systems as the technological glue. As a result, IS courses are linked to other courses and departments within and outside the School of Business, and to courses outside Le Moyne College, notably to courses at Syracuse University through the 4+1 B.S./M.S. information systems program, whereby Le Moyne IS students can obtain an accelerated Master of Science in information management from Syracuse University.

Le Moyne students may also complete a 6-9 month corporate technology immersion experience through the Global Enterprise Technology program. Finally, industry, academia and government alliances provide key partnership opportunities for Le Moyne College students. The result is that IS courses are linked and cross-listed with a variety of disciplines and across multiple academic institutions; those links include ties to computer science, nursing, health care systems, finance, marketing, sports management, business analytics, and management and leadership.
