BA in Computer Application is a full-time undergraduate course in Information Technology, offered in the Bachelor of Science in Information Systems (BSIS) degree program. The program emphasizes practical applications and research in the areas of networking, software, hardware, and microelectronics. This program has produced strong graduates who are equipped with both the technology skills and information management skills to succeed in a variety of careers. Graduates of this program have gone on to do post-graduate work in areas such as human resources, education, healthcare, and marketing, to name just a few. Many of those who have obtained a BA degree in Information Technology utilize their knowledge to find new ways to apply cutting-edge technologies to solve complex problems. Others use their skills to start their own companies.
The six semesters in a BA in Computer Application are divided between the fall and spring semesters. During the fall, students must complete two semesters of core curriculum, while in the spring they can opt to complete six semesters of business focus courses. Both sets of core courses must be completed in order to graduate. In addition, students must also complete the elective courses required to complete their degrees.
Like many graduate programs, a prospective student will be required to attend an interview prior to being admitted into a BA in Computer Application. Interviewing is usually conducted by calling applicants in for the first round of interviews, followed by the in-campus selection process. Those who pass the initial interview round are automatically placed in the top half of the class, and those who do not pass are normally accepted into the second round of interviews.
The Graduate School of Business in Boston does not accept the U.S. Common Application for Financial Aid, which is required for most applicants to complete their degrees. Students who do not qualify for acceptance into an undergraduate program should consider using Financial Aid or other assistance offered through the MBA programs. In addition to Financial Aid, applicants may choose to apply to the Computer Science Application Fund, which provides over half a million dollars in scholarships, grants, and bursaries for graduate students. The Program's Office will review all applications for approval based on academic excellence and need, and select those that meet the requirements to participate in the Master's program.
Those students who are not admitted into an undergraduate program or who have been denied admittance into an undergraduate program may still be eligible for admission into the Masters Program. Eligibility for enrollment into the Master's program depends on the following details: academic excellence, financial need, a history of excellence in graduate studies, and membership in the National Association for Computer Applications (NACE). Students with previous financial aid from the MBA program or members of N ACE are considered under the category of “ineligible” for enrollment. Students who are members of the National Association for Computer Applications (N ACE) are considered for admittance into the Computer Applications Master's Program.
Students who have completed the MBA program are required to complete the GMAT examination for admittance into the MBA. In case you have not started your course work for the GMAT examination yet, please contact the MBA Department to let them know so that they can prepare your submission. Please check for any announcements posted in your MBA . . . . . . website or in your school bulletin board.
