A Technology Concentration Applied to the World of Business Administration

The BBA concentration in Information Systems is for working adults who are beginning or advancing their technology career or who want to apply their knowledge of technology to business environments. Here you’ll earn about data mining, data warehousing, networks, programming, app development, project management, and analytics, some of the hottest technology job markets.

The broad-based Bachelor of Business Administration degree provides the working adult student the knowledge in multiple areas of business needed to make better decisions that help any organization reach its objectives. The information systems technology focus provides a critical area of expertise for all organizations — data is everywhere. A graduate who only knows one function of a business has limited potential; a graduate who knows all functions of a business has unlimited potential.

The Information Systems technology program at Catawba College enables working adults to be enrolled as full-time students while attending hybrid classes with face-to-face meetings one evening a week and one additional evening per month. If you prefer even more flexibility, you can complete this degree fully online from any place with internet access.

Program Highlights

  • Flexibility & Support

    We support full-time adult students and part-time adult students and are flexible to match your schedule and career goals. You can go to school year-round or take the summer off. You can also take a month off during a semester, and still be a full-time student for financial aid.

  • Employability

    Information technology and systems graduates look toward a growing job market with high average income when equipped with highly desirable technology and business management skills.

  • Program Accreditation

    The Information Systems program is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). What you will learn is based on real-world business best practices.


The Information Systems technology concentration also works well with other concentrations, providing for a stronger resume for high-income career advancement. Being a technology expert is important but knowing how data and systems can support all functions of business is critical. The added concentration can often be completed by replacing electives with concentration courses, a true gain for the graduate who ends up with a stronger resume.


The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in the computer information and technology sector will continue to increase by approximately 13% through the year 2030.

The ability to handle situations comes from being well-versed in all aspects of the business, and the capability to be decisive based on the needs at that time.
