Put data to work to gain insights and drive decision making.

We’re living in an age where data powers our daily lives, and organizations of all sizes are using data to drive critical business decision-making.

Gathering this data raises questions about accuracy, privacy, equality, and ethics. Analyzing it requires deep analytical and technical expertise. And using it to inform business decisions requires communication and management skills.

These skills have never been in higher demand. In fact, Glassdoor has ranked data scientist as the best job for the last five years in a row.

Our program prepares you for this rewarding career. You’ll learn how to analyze and operationalize all sizes of data sets. Understand information science and management principles. And apply data science to enterprise operations and processes.

To complement their information management and technology studies, students in this dual program can select from the following management majors:

  • Accounting
  • Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises
  • Finance
  • International Business
  • Management Studies
  • Marketing
  • Real Estate
  • Retail Management
  • Strategic Management

Students may apply directly to the dual program as incoming first-year students or may add the dual as a current student, after completion of the dual-degree admission requirements.

Approximately ten percent of students in the School of Information Studies choose to take a dual degree with the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, whose entrepreneurship program was ranked among the best in the nation by the Princeton Review in 2014.  Students who select this option often seek a working knowledge of business with the technical training in information systems to set them apart from standard business school graduates. Job opportunities are plentiful and get more exciting as the advances in technology prepare businesses for competition in the global marketplace.
