What is Business Information Technology?

Business Information Technology is the study of how contemporary businesses use data and information in their operations.  If you prefer the business side of technology, this is the program for you.

Professionals who earn an Associate degree in Business Information Technology perform tasks such as manage projects, facilitate scheduling, provide information to customers, vendors, and co-workers, organize and maintain files, work with data, and produce documentation.

BIT vs. IT

Front-Office Technologists, or those who have an BIT degree, spend their time using “enterprise applications” — software programs, such as Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, or working on information technology-focused initiatives used by the company’s employees or customers.

Back-Office Technologists, or those who have an IT degree, work on computer applications and computer hardware. Their workdays are filled with programming responsibilities or supporting the company’s mainframe, mobile applications and desktop computers.
