BS in Information Management and Technology

Information Management and Technology at the iSchool

With a BS in Information Management and Technology (IM&T), iSchool students focus on the human side of information technology. You’ll learn to see the big picture, and your coursework will explore all corners of the information field. You will focus on the needs of information users, learn the value of information and technology, and develop an adaptable and highly portable set of skills for the modern workplace.

This program is a full-time, on campus degree. Our curriculum is flexible, and offers an incredible range of classes, concentrations, and opportunities to minor. Our school is one of the smaller ones on the Syracuse University campus, so it feels like a second home. When you pair the iSchool’s tight-knit community with Orange pride, you get an incredible alumni network that wants to connect with you. Information technology is everywhere, but here at the iSchool, you can make it yours.

Dual Major Programs

Some students who want to study at the iSchool have passions other than technology. That’s why the iSchool partnered with other schools on campus to create two dual major degrees. You can combine your Information Management & Technology degree with a major from S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications or the Martin J. Whitman School of Management.

Fast Track to a Master’s Degree

With Fast Track, IM&T majors have the chance to complete a master’s degree with one additional year of study. Even better? IM&T majors already have a foundation in the information field, so we waive introductory graduate classes, making graduate school even faster and more cost-effective than for other Syracuse University majors.
