Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and Management

Organizations are driven by and depend on data—and they need leaders who can protect that information and strategically analyze it to achieve business goals.

Merge business and technology

Our innovative curriculum is one of the few nationally—and the only undergraduate program in the State University of New York (SUNY) system—that focuses on both technical and business skills. You will receive practical programming experience while developing critical soft skills through the curriculum’s strong management component and learn how to leverage technology to deliver results.

Gain the tools to:

  • Propose and create IT solutions with new applications.
  • Manage databases and employ data modeling techniques to analyze information, make decisions and add value.
  • Identify, evaluate and use emerging technologies to realize business opportunities.
  • Communicate and present clearly and concisely to a wide audience.
  • Be an effective project manager, collaborative team member and strong leader.
