The BBA degree in information systems (IS) produces students who know how to apply technology as a driver of business strategy. This requires students to have strong technology skills, a clear understanding of business strategy, processes, and environment, and ultimately an ability to envision and apply technology solutions in a business environment. Students earning a BBA in information systems understand web and application development in the context of the business environment. Graduates have capabilities in systems analysis and design, database management, and IT project management. Students also have the opportunity to consider information systems strategy in the global environment and bring everything together into an IS capstone course. The program of study includes general business courses, and business topics are integrated into many IS courses. The BBA in IS provides students with flexible elective options. Elective courses focus on cutting-edge IT topics such as data mining and business intelligence.

Students completing the BBA in IS may choose to pursue graduate studies in IS, business, and related fields, or they may choose to begin careers in industry, government, or other agencies. Graduates of the IS program are prepared for a variety of careers in IS, especially in the design, implementation, and management of IT projects. Example job titles include application developer, application support, business analyst, business intelligence manager, client services analyst, database administrator, database analyst, information resource manager, IT consultant, programmer/analyst, project manager, quality assurance analyst, systems analyst, user support analyst, web developer, web page designer, and webmaster.

The Coles College of Business has special admission, progression, and graduation requirements that must be met by students seeking the B.B.A. degree.  In order to be able to take upper-division courses in Information Systems and graduate with an Information Systems B.B.A., students must successfully complete BUSA 2150 and the Coles College Sophomore GPA Requirement, and be admitted to the Coles Undergraduate Professional Program. Admission to the Coles Undergraduate Professional Program is separate from admission to Kennesaw State University. In addition, all business majors must earn a grade of "C" or better in all business courses counted toward their degree.
