The CSB Program is offered jointly by the College of Business and Economics (CBE) and the department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE). Unlike other programs where students have a dominant college, the CSB program is so balanced that the students are simultaneously in both the College of Business and Economics and the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science (RCEAS).
The CSB program integrates computing technologies and business topics at an unprecedented level, providing the skills and training needed to understand business functions and business related problems, to analyze business-user information needs, to design computer based information systems, and to implement systems solutions within business organizations.
Graduates of the program are ideal candidates for placement within the risk management groups of public accounting firms, large consulting firms, and startup companies. This program also lays the foundation for students who will eventually become the CIO's, decision makers, and general managers of information age corporations.
The CSB program is, however, not just a preparation for a career in business computing, it is a full fledged technological degree in computer science. It also prepares students to enter graduate school in computer science or to begin pure computer-science careers such as software development, but providing them with a business background that gives them a significant edge.
