Purpose
The BSBA specialization in information systems auditing and control (ISAC) is designed for students who seek an integrated curriculum of accounting, computer science, and management information systems. Courses in programming languages, database, data communications, accounting information systems, auditing, systems analysis, and design provide ISAC graduates with knowledge required to assess adequacy of the system of internal controls for sophisticated computer-based systems.

While the program is designed to prepare students to become information systems auditing professionals, many students who seek a career in management information systems select ISAC as a second specialization. The ISAC specialization provides the student with additional training in financial accounting, accounting information systems, and design and analysis of internal control systems.

Career opportunities include areas of computer assurance services, information systems auditing, computer security, or management information systems. Other graduates are hired by public accounting and/or consulting firms in computer security assessment and consulting practices or as part of assurance services teams.

BSBA general degree requirements
Students completing the information systems auditing and control specialization must complete University, general degree, admission core, and business core requirements for the BSBA degree, including admission to the BSBA program.
