The advent of the Information Age has spawned new technologies and brought a revolution in the business world. The School of Business is committed to using technology to enhance student learning and keep pace with the increased speed and complexity of business. We employ hybrid courses with online components, computer classrooms equipped with the latest technology, and online business databases with resources accessible on- and off-campus. We also provide our first-year students with a laptop to ensure full access to mobile technologies for classes.
We are committed to providing the best possible learning experience to our students with these software programs:
- Standard & Poor’s Compustat and Capital IQ for financial and market information on active and inactive companies throughout the world. With Compustat, students learn how money managers and quantitative researchers get the reliability and coverage they need to meet their business requirements.
- Decision support and expert systems tools including Planners Lab, Prolog and Exsys in support of business problem solving. With these tools, students learn about a manager’s responsibilities for problem solving and decision making, and those areas in which technology can be used to gain a competitive advantage.
- IBM SPSS Statistics for comprehensive, easy-to-use sets of data and predictive analytics tools. With SPSS students learn sound research methodology and how to analyze and interpret business data.
- SAP for Enterprise Resource Planning solutions for a variety of industries. With SAP students gain insight into how technology can empower a business to optimize key processes such as accounting and controlling, human capital management, plant and materials management, as well as sales and distribution.
The technological advances achieved in the past few decades have brought a revolution in the business world.
