: 109

This transfer degree track is for students who plan to transfer to a four-year program such as information systems or information management. The curriculum is designed to present a broad coverage of concepts applying to the theory and management of information, analytical techniques in the development of computer-based information systems, and practical experience with business programming.

Because of the variation in such programs at four-year institutions, students are urged to consult an adviser about specific course selections.
