Why Information Systems (BS) + MBA?

In today’s highly competitive and technology-driven economy, job opportunities abound in corporate, entrepreneurial, nonprofit, and ministry settings. This program differentiates itself through the practice of the hands-on tasks the fast-paced business world demands. Courses will concentrate on network implementations, server deployment and documentation, and full stack integration.

Earning a BS degree in Information Systems concurrently with an MBA will set you apart in the job market and allow for more opportunities for growth in your career. In the Cairn University MBA, you will learn the quantitative and operational skills necessary to help drive business success, but also understand the importance of organizational dynamics and the essential values required for ethical, moral, and wise leadership in today’s marketplace.

How it Works:

This dual-level program allows you to condense what would be six years of study (four-year bachelor’s + two-year master’s) into just five years by starting master-level courses as early as your junior year. You’ll be able to complete all requirements for both degrees in as few as five years without taking summer courses. 

You will also continue to receive your undergraduate scholarships and tuition aid for all five years of study, which will save you thousands of dollars.
