Professor and Chair

Today’s businesses and global citizens are increasingly reliant on technology – from electronic banking applications on our phones to digital health records and everything in between–and BIT is prepared to help you be on the forefront of these business transformations and technological changes. I am proud of BIT’s contribution to Missouri S&T’s mission to integrate education, research, and application at the intersection of business and information technology.

We are a department with a big impact. Our students not only excel in their education, but also attain exciting, well-paying internships, co-ops, and jobs. We are also ranked nationally for our forward-thinking programs that integrate business acumen with technological expertise

BIT offers four-degree programs: bachelor of science in business and management systems as well as bachelor of science in information science and technology; we also offer the master of business administration and master of science in information science and technology. We are proud that all of our degree programs are AACSB accredited. AACSB is a premier and international accreditation only attained by about 5% of the business programs worldwide.

Our academic programs are developed in collaboration with industry leaders and stakeholders. Our Business Advisory Board and alumni advise curriculum development to ensure we are training the next generation of business executives and technological leaders.  

We welcome opportunities to connect with future and current students, alumni, industry partners, and stakeholders. Please contact us for additional information or questions.
