The Business and Technology major is open only to students at the Hartford, Stamford and Waterbury Campuses. The program objective of the major in business and technology is to provide a business degree with a special emphasis in the application of information technology. Functional area concentrations (three courses) are also possible in selected areas based on the availability of courses.
BSBT contains a solid core of required information technology courses but is not directed at training IT professionals. Rather, the focus is on providing conceptual and core IT knowledge necessary for individuals to be at the cutting edge of their chosen functional areas. In particular, students concentrating in areas such as finance, financial markets, or interactive marketing should be positioned to excel.
The following courses are representative of those offered by the Operations and Information Management Department and required for the Business and Technology major:
Introduction to Database Management
Business Application Programming
Internet Technologies and Electronic Commerce
Three Business School electives at the 200 level beyond the common body of knowledge courses are also required. Students may be able to focus these three courses to form a concentration in a functional area of business.
Also available as an additional elective course in connection with the business and technology major is OPIM 208 System Development and Process Management
Specific criteria pertaining to admission to the School of Business, details regarding degree requirements, major requirements, and course descriptions can be found in the University’s General Catalogue, available by visiting the University of Connecticut Website: http://www.uconn.edu.
