The Orfalea College of Business’ information systems concentration combines the study of people, organizations and technology. At Cal Poly, information systems students develop a broad-based, sought-after skill set that combines a foundation of business principles and strategy with rigorous technological skills. Following the university’s Learn by Doing philosophy, students receive hands-on skill development with the latest software platforms and work on real-world collaborative projects along side their peers, faculty, and our corporate partners. With the current business environment that relies heavily on information technology, our students are well prepared for challenging careers in a global economy. Cal Poly’s graduates are in high demand among consulting firms, high tech firms, startups, and bio-tech firms, to name a few, and are able to command significant starting salaries.
The information systems concentration is open to business administration and economics majors.
