Our mission is to integrate quality instruction in information systems and supply chain management with relevant research and professional services. This integration will help students develop an appropriate background and critical skills needed to function effectively in a global, technology-driven environment. We strive to fulfill this mission as an integral part of the Bryan School of Business and Economics and in support of its mission and purposes. Our chief goal is to provide top-tier information systems and supply chain management programs in North Carolina as assessed by employers of our graduates.
Programs offered by the department include study of information technology and supply chain analysis applied to business operations and management decision making.
