The option in Business Technology Management is a bridge between business and information technology (IT) and provides you an understanding of the use of IT to support, streamline, and improve organizational (business, government, non-profit) processes. It enables you to develop core competencies and skill sets in information systems and analytics, exposing you to strategic issues in technology management and best practices for planning, designing, and implementing IT solutions to enhance organizational performance.

The courses are organized in in four (4) layers:

1. Basics in coding  - ITI 1120 Introduction to Computing I

2. Management of data, databases and data analytics - ADM 3308 Business Data Mining

3. Systems analysis and design - ADM 3379 Systems Analysis, Development, and Performance

4. Implementation of IS solutions - ADM 3378 Emerging Topics in Management Information Systems
