The mission of the Business Administration - Information Systems program is to prepare students to excel at two primary academic roles: knowledge creation and knowledge dissemination. The program has had a high degree of success in fulfilling its mission. The goal is to ensure that this tradition is maintained, but also to strive for continuous improvement in training world-class researchers and teachers.
While the focus is on business, Information Technology is tightly integrated with all aspects of our lives. Our research spans phenomena including IT in healthcare, IT Governance, Evolution of the IT Organization, Management of IT resources, Open Collaborative Communities, Social Media, Environmental Sustainability and IT, Social Entrepreneurship, Software Management, and Big Data.
In order to support our research, we use a wide range of quantitative, qualitative, and design science techniques for creating knowledge such as data analytics, machine learning, experimental, econometrics, simulation, and grounded theory.
