Department ofInformation Systems and Analytics

Information Systems & Analytics

Big data. Big Business.

Information Systems and Analytics (ISA) is an interdisciplinary department that considers how technology can facilitate business decisions to guide organizations to success. Our curriculum focuses on the intersection of areas like big data and business intelligence. It combines theory and strategy with hands-on experience.

As an undergraduate major in Management Information Systems or Accounting & Information Systems, you’ll have the chance to design applications in the lab and then put your learning to practice through credit bearing internships. Our Master’s in Information Systems students all complete a capstone project, which involves creating and implementing software for a local company.

About Our Program

ISA at SCU

We’ve been there—members of our faculty have founded companies and worked in both engineering and management. And they are pushing the field forward with research in business intelligence, software engineering, computer security, business analytics, and supply chain management.

No other school teaches information systems and analytics like we do. You’ll be at the forefront of the discipline and have fantastic job prospects when you graduate.
