Many businesses are upgrading their technical systems in an effort to improve their practices. As a result, many campus-based and online schools are creating degree programs that can give students the skills they will need to manage new technologies.

For instance, Grantham University recently announced the launch of two new bachelors degree programs that are intended to prepare students for careers in the computer and information systems industry.

The online school’s four-year program in information systems is designed to teach students to organize, coordinate and lead technical research at their companies. The curriculum will also enable students to direct the computer-related activities of their organizations.

Enrollees at the school may also pursue a bachelors program in information systems security, which will teach degree seekers to use technology to protect their employer’s interests. Coursework for this degree program addresses subjects such as operating systems, computer architectures, networking protocols and the foundations of security.

Individuals who complete similar programs are expected to see favorable career prospects in the coming years, as nearly 50,000 jobs for computer and information systems managers will be created over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
