B. S. in Business

The B.S. in Business curriculum is designed to help students understand the many functions involved in operating a successful organization in today's global economy. The School of Management draws upon NJIT's vast resources in science and technology to present a focused program emphasizing the application and management of technology to improve decision-making and competitiveness in organizations, from the multinational conglomerate to the local small business.

The curriculum is cross-disciplinary in approach, emphasizing the intersection of information technologies, business planning, and human behavior in organizations. The program also emphasizes quantitative skills and utilization of current information-age technologies. Students are introduced to multimedia systems, E-commerce and Financial Systems. Students also gain knowledge of current telecommunications technologies and their impact on business operations. Since companies in both domestic and international markets increasingly seek technology-oriented business managers, NJIT business graduates have an advantage.

CONCENTRATIONS

The B.S. in Business offers five concentrations: management information systems, marketing, finance, international business and accounting.

The management information systems concentration focuses on the design of information systems that improve business effectiveness. Coursework includes programming languages, database design, and applications of information technologies to business problems.

The marketing concentration focuses on business-to-business marketing with a strong emphasis on the marketing of technology-based products and innovations. Courses emphasize selling and promotion, product design and market research, and marketing information systems.

The finance concentration focuses on finance and financial technologies. Courses cover topics such as securities, risk management, financial statement analysis and ERP systems.

The International Business specialization emphasizes global business and an understanding of diverse cultures and business environments. Students are strongly encouraged to study abroad at one of our partner universities.

The accounting concentration offers students who want to become accountants the required course path for getting a CPA license. Courses include managerial accounting, cost accounting, auditing, federal tax and new courses that will be added are forensic and international accounting.

The curriculum as described below is for students entering NJIT as freshmen in the Fall 2007 or after that date. Students entering before that date may have a different program and should consult the school to learn which curriculum applies.
