The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) is pleased to announce that it has begun accepting applications to its online Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems (B.S.I.S.) program for Fall 2014.

The B.S.I.S. will focus on five components of information systems—processes, people, data, infrastructure, and design—and on the ways they combine to create agile and competitive organizations. It will provide students with the practical knowledge to make sense of and contribute to the increasingly globalized and technology-driven business environment. The program’s online classes make it one of the most convenient IS degree options for working professionals and transfer students looking to complete the bachelor’s degree.

Students in the B.S. in Information Systems program will:

• Develop core technical proficiency in programming, web and mobile app development, database design and management, enterprise applications and cloud computing, systems analysis and design, and networking and security
• Customize the curriculum through a broad range of technical and application electives such as e-commerce, human resources, marketing, GIS, healthcare systems, computer forensics, data science, and business process redesign
• Learn practical and high-demand skills through hands-on projects in every course
• Cultivate a strong sense of innovation and entrepreneurship through courses in technology strategy and management as well as by developing their technology portfolios

The CUNY School of Professional Studies originated the first fully accredited online degree program at the City University of New York (CUNY). Founded in 2003, CUNY SPS was developed to cater to the demands of the job market, and its programs were designed to meet the educational needs of working adults, organizations, and employers. CUNY SPS is also the first CUNY School to feature entirely online undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Students engage with each other and faculty by email, ePortfolios, blogs, instant messaging, and discussion boards. Like other intuitions at CUNY, CUNY SPS offers the CUNY Value: high-quality and affordable academic programs, award-winning faculty, and 21st-century technology, leading to academic advancement and employment in high-demand jobs.
