Student studying on campus

Information Technology major

Information delivered quickly and accurately is the key to any successful enterprise. The IT specialist provides the infrastructure for firms to compete strategically by planning, designing, installing and managing the systems used by a firm's functional areas — finance, marketing, human resources management and supply chain management.

No headaches.

With excellent job placement — some get offers months before graduation — our information technology majors are poised to make an impact when they graduate.

Cross train your brain.

With our deeply integrated business core, information technology majors learn all the fundamental aspects of business functions: accounting, economics, marketing, finance and management. When your understanding of business operations goes beyond the realm of IT to the rest of an enterprise's functions, you broaden your opportunities for advancement.


As an information technology major, you'll have the opportunity to practice your skills with companies such as GE Healthcare, Harley-Davidson, Johnson Controls Inc., MillerCoors, Accenture, Direct Supply, Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, PWC, West Bend Mutual and Fiserv.

Explain yourself.

Our liberal arts-based core curriculum will make you a strong communicator, so you'll be an articulate problem-solver who's equally adept with people and information technology. As an information technology major, those communication skills will come in handy as you listen to users' needs and design effective systems to meet those needs.

Going global.

Our Project Management class works virtually with student development teams in other countries. A winterim course takes information technology majors to visit offshore IT firms.
