Computer Science-Applied: Business

To submit a proposed plan of study, use the Applied CS Program webform.

Computer science and business are both highly desired, especially when mixed together. Many CS companies start small and these companies need employees that have the basics to help make a company grow successfully. Business is also desirable with CS because it can add management and communication skills to a technological degree. Students who choose this option will gain an understanding of the fundamentals of business and learn the language of business so they can communicate financial information, organizational behavior, marketing, and operations.

Students in this focus area can work with a business advisor to prepare for an MBA program.
