The Instructional Program
The purpose of the BBA in Information Technology Management program is to prepare students for employment in information technology as managers, supervisors, and project team leaders. The BBA program is designed to train management professionals who are proficient in the use of computers and computational techniques,while also providing in-depth training in management theory, concept, and practice as they apply to the management of information technology. A full-semester internship is an elective possibility for this program.
The bachelor's degree program does not replace the associate's degree program in computer information, but rather builds upon it. Students may enter as freshmen or apply for transfer into the program after earning an associate's degree, provided they meet the entry performance qualifications.
Students are encouraged to participate in the Delhi Computer Club, an extracurricular organization for students interested in the broad range of computer-related technologies.
