Customized and Flexible

BIT's 4+1 and Graduate Track Pathway programs allow students currently working on a bachelors degree to dual enroll in the MBA or M.S. IST program during their final year or final semester and receive their graduate degree in one additional year after completing their undergraduate degree.

We offer both our MBA and M.S. IST degrees on campus or completely online using state-of-the-art virtual classrooms. As a distance student in either program, you can interact directly with your professors and classmates during a lecture or view materials at a later time that fits your schedule.
