Iona College School of Business is set to launch four new graduate programs this fall.
The college will add Master of Science degrees in Information Systems, Accounting and Information Systems, and Technology, Media and Telecommunications in the Sports and Entertainment Business. It will also offer an Advanced Certificate in Health Care Analytics.
“The new programs add to the portfolio of programs offered by the School of Business with which to develop academically prepared business professionals for today’s complex business world,” said Charles J. Cante, interim dean of the School of Business.
Curriculum under the Information Systems degree will teach students to analyze, design and evaluate an organization’s information technology systems. Graduates of the program will develop skills in a variety of areas from systems analysis to project management.
“In a business environment where solid technology and information management skills are increasingly in demand, we are excited to be offering this opportunity at the master’s level,” said Shoshana Altschuller, associate professor and chair of the Information Systems Department. “As the information revolution continues to gather speed, our students will be prepared to address the new challenges and opportunities that it brings.”
The new Accounting and Information Systems degree is designed to prepare the next generation of accountants with the information technology foundation and skills needed to succeed in a variety of technology-intensive careers.
The Technology, Media and Telecommunications in Sports and Entertainment Business degree will include a curriculum of finance, digital marketing and analytics, sales, talent representation, facility and event operations.
Students who work toward earning an Advanced Certificate in Health Care Analytics will develop an understanding of the sources and quality of data resources, the management and mining of data repositories and quantitative techniques to answer management questions.
The New Rochelle-based college also recently added a new Master of Arts degree program in Sports Communication & Media, as well as programs in Game Development and Project Management.
