This unique program prepares students to bridge the gap between two disciplines that are critical to business operations: Accounting and Management Information Systems. The program is taught exclusively within the Department of Accounting and Finance which strengthens the curriculum structure of the program focusing on important, relevant accounting, internal controls, and information technology issues. AIS students take courses in database design, networking and data communications, systems analysis and design, and IT audit, all with an accounting emphasis.
Students who complete this concentration will be entering into one of the fastest growing, most dynamic areas in accounting. Graduates are attractive to public accounting firms and corporations with jobs such as liaisons between the accounting/financial systems users and the information systems technical staff or to design and deploy information technology to improve the accounting systems of an organization. Careers might take paths in areas such as IT or internal audit, forensic accounting, risk management, or litigation services. This qualifies students to sit for the CISA (Computer Information Systems Auditor) examination.
