Department of Systems and Technology

The Department of Systems and Technology prepares students for careers involving the planning, analysis, and execution of processes related to the movement of passengers, product, and information. The professional programs within the Department are designed to provide students with the technical skills and knowledge needed to be effective decision makers for their organizations. The professional programs available are Information Systems Management (ISMN), Business Analytics (BUAL), Supply Chain Management (SCMN), Aviation Management (AVMG), and Professional Flight Management (AVMF). Information regarding careers, internships, scholarships, and student organizations is available through the program coordinators. College of Business pre-requisites are strictly enforced. Junior standing and compliance with College of Business academic standards are required for all 3000 and above level courses.

Information Systems Management

The Information Systems Management program provides education and training so that students can help lead organizational change projects in transforming and improving business processes and in designing and creating new, innovative digital products and services. The program is designed to enable students to meet the challenges that are poised by Information Technology Management in both public sector and for-profit organizations. Because information systems are critical to all aspects of every organization, Information System Management majors are in great demand in the marketplace. Information systems students can focus their study in the areas of business analytics, information security, and/or technology infrastructure.

Business Analytics

The Business Analytics Program prepares students for careers that use data to support solve problems and exploit opportunities in a data-driven manner. Students learn skills in a natural progression including managing data, uncovering patterns in data, developing predictive models, and using these models to make better decisions. Business Analytics skills are in demand across a wide range of industries including healthcare, marketing, finance, consulting, transportation, and information technology. Students are encouraged to develop expertise in a functional business discipline such as marketing or finance using elective coursework.

Supply Chain Management

The Supply Chain Management program combines logistics and operations management knowledge to provide a comprehensive education for students interested in careers with manufacturers, retailers, consultancies, and logistics services providers. The primary goal of the program is to provide a practical understanding of procurement, operations, logistics, and transportation so that graduates will excel in entry-level management positions, graduate school, and future opportunities.

Aviation Management

The Aviation Management program is accredited by Aviation Accreditation Board International. The program provides a technical management background and specialization in aviation leading to careers with airlines, aircraft manufacturers, airports, and other segments of the aviation industry. Individuals interested in registering in the Aviation Management concentration are advised to contact the program director for Aviation Management in the College of Business for proper counseling and classification.

Professional Flight Management

The Professional Flight Management program is accredited by Aviation Accreditation Board International. The program provides the technical management background and specialization as does the Aviation Management concentration. Additionally, students pursuing the Professional Flight Management concentration are required to earn the pilot ratings that are required to meet the qualifications to be hired as a pilot with the airlines or corporate aviation. The pilot courses within the Professional Flight Management curriculum require students to obtain and maintain a Federal Aviation Administration medical certificate. The pilot courses also incur additional fees beyond Auburn University tuition. See the program coordinator for further details.
