Information Systems

STEM Program

It’s one thing to graduate from an information systems program with technical knowledge.
It’s quite another to graduate with vision.

It takes a lot of technically proficient IS professionals to design and maintain the systems that drive e-commerce, cloud computing, and big data. But ultimately companies are looking for people who also get the big picture.

How can technology be used to innovate business models?

Where are the biggest opportunities for technological disruption?

Which trends will deliver lasting value to the bottom line?

At the Gabelli School, we give students the economic and business context they need to answer those questions and take a leadership role in IS.
