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.
To complement their information management and technology studies, students in this dual program can select from the following management majors:
- Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises
- International Business
- Management Studies
- 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.
