Information Systems & Data Analytics Program Description
The Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in Information Systems and Data Analytics is being developed to create a discreet major that fits within the much larger context of curricular renewal at Loyola.&nbsp; Loyola University Maryland seeks to establish these programs as standalone undergraduate majors. These proposals are the result of university-wide curricular review and renewal. <br> <br>The BBA in Information Systems and Data Analytics (ISDA) major prepares students to strategically utilize digital technologies and data analytics in any business-related field and communicate the results effectively to technical and nontechnical audiences. Students learn to adapt to a wide range of current and emerging technologies for technological agility, employ hgher-order cognitive abilities for evidence-based decision making, and consider the impact of technology on society.
