The Combined Degree program in Information Systems and Operations Management (BS/MS) is designed to provide students with computing, quantitative and applications skills vital to a business problem-solving setting. The ISOM program requirements span traditional academic disciplines to produce a multi-disciplinary major.
The university created combined degree programs to provide academically talented students an opportunity to complete a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in a shorter period of time. The program allows you to “double-count” graduate courses toward both degrees, thus reducing the time it would normally take to graduate by a semester. The combined degree program reduces the cost of both degrees and enhances your marketability for career advancement.
Students from a variety of backgrounds, including business administration and engineering, enroll in the Combined Degree program. Students without a business background may need an additional semester in the program. To obtain the master’s degree, there is no thesis requirement and no option to write a thesis in place of required course work.
