In today’s highly competitive global environment, the effective deployment of information technology has become the key to organizational success.
There is a continuing shortage of individuals with the combination of business and technology skills needed to develop and manage information systems that provide competitive advantage in the global marketplace. The mission of the B.B.A. in Computer Information Systems program is to produce graduates who are able to fill this need.
Georgia State’s undergraduate catalog lists the required coursework for the program as well as a suggested schedule of study.
This program is part of Robinson’s Department of Computer Information Systems.

We take pride in exposing students to the real world so their learning goes beyond textbooks.
For their capstone course, B.B.A. in Computer Information Systems students choose between two classes, both of which include real-world projects:
System Development Projects (CIS 4980)
In groups of three to six and under the supervision of a faculty member, students consult with real companies that need help solving a complex IT issue. Over the course of the semester, students evaluate the business’ IT processes and operations as well as security policies. As part of a team led by the client, students aid in developing and implementing the proposed solution.
Field Study in Computer Information Systems (CIS 4970)
Over the course of a semester-long internship, students assist a company with the planning and/or implementation of IT projects. Duties may include providing IT training or end user support depending on the needs of the firm.
