This information is used by managers to make business decisions. Students specializing in ISM frequently pursue career positions as business analysts, data base analysts, ERP specialists, social media specialist, web content manager, and information systems managers. The courses offered in the ISM program emphasize hands-on technical application of relevant software and coverage of  content for course-related certification exams.
