The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Information Technology Management degree focuses on the analytical and managerial aspects of the information systems, while developing students’ skills in advanced computing technology, such as Cloud computing, mobile applications development, web development and digital marketing, IT risk and project management, database development and administration, data analytics, and cyber-security. The curriculum also embraces business and management competencies to prepare students for the ever-changing information management field and leadership positions.

Employment of computer and information systems managers is projected to grow 11 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for computer and information systems managers will grow as firms increasingly expand their operations to digital platforms. Computer and information systems managers will be responsible for implementing these goals.
Employment growth will result from the need to bolster cybersecurity in computer and information systems used by businesses. Industries such as retail trade will need to implement more robust security policies as cyber threats increase.
An increase in the popularity of cloud computing may result in firms outsourcing services from in-house IT departments to cloud-computing companies. This will shift IT services from IT departments in noncomputer industries, such as financial firms or schools, to firms engaged in computer systems design and related services and those in data processing, hosting, and related services.
