The Madden School of Business at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New YorkWelcome to the Information Systems Program!

All disciplines are experiencing growth in computer use, and students who enrich their knowledge of information systems (IS) have a distinct professional advantage. The Information Systems program is designed to serve students with educational and career interests in information systems, as well as those students who have other career and educational interests and who desire knowledge of information systems.

Where Can Studying Information Systems Take Me?

The IS curriculum uses formal links and cross listings to integrate knowledge across the College, using information systems as the technological glue. As a result, IS courses are linked to other courses and departments within and outside the School of Business, and to courses outside Le Moyne College, notably to courses at Syracuse University through the 4+1 B.S./M.S. information systems program, whereby Le Moyne IS students can obtain an accelerated Master of Science in information management from Syracuse University.

Le Moyne students may also complete a 6-9 month corporate technology immersion experience through the Global Enterprise Technology program. Finally, industry, academia and government alliances provide key partnership opportunities for Le Moyne College students. The result is that IS courses are linked and cross-listed with a variety of disciplines and across multiple academic institutions; those links include ties to computer science, nursing, health care systems, finance, marketing, sports management, business analytics, and management and leadership.

Information Systems Program and MS, Information Systems program students were hosted by Ernst & Young's NYC office, and were briefed by alumni Kathleen Calabro '13, Matt Mahaffy '12, and Le Moyne Trustee and adjunct professor Bill Barrett '78, the E&Y partner leading E&Y's Risk Advisory Services. The meeting took place during the group's annual professional development visit and day in New York City.
What IS Programs Are Offered?

The IS program provides undergraduate and graduate information systems courses for six undergraduate degree programs, two undergraduate minor programs, two graduate degree programs, and several certificate courses in information systems:

  • B.S., Business Administration, with a major in Information Systems.
  • B.S., Business Administration, dual majors in Analytics/Information Systems; Finance/Information Systems; Human Resources Management/Information Systems; Marketing/Information Systems; and Management and Leadership/Information Systems.
  • B.S., Accounting, with a concentration in Information Systems.
  • Minor in Management Information Systems.
  • Minor in Health Information Systems.
     Joint IS/Computer Science degree in Software Applications and Systems Development (SASD)
  • 4+1 Dual Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree program in Information Systems at Le Moyne College (for Le Moyne Business undergraduate students and Le Moyne Arts & Sciences undergraduate students);

  • 5-year BS Accounting/M.S.,Information Systems
  • M.S., Information Systems.
  • Graduate Management Information Systems courses for MBA students, and Graduate Certificates in Enterprise Systems and Health Information Systems.

Each of these programs and degrees provides differing levels of background and experience with information systems. Students with a major other than business administration who are interested in a basic level of familiarity with information systems can pursue an M.I.S. or Health IS minor as part of their course of study. Graduate students interested in advanced study in health information systems or enterprise systems may pursue a graduate certificate in either or both areas. 

Interested students are encouraged to discuss these choices with their advisers or the information systems program director to determine which offering best meets their needs. Students majoring in information systems are encouraged to pursue internship opportunities as part of their academic experience. Exceptional students are encouraged to participate in honors study.
