Although a bachelor’s degree in business information systems takes twice the amount of time to complete than an associate’s degree, it may be worth the commitment because of the opportunities that open up with a four year degree. Earning a bachelor’s degree not only gives you more opportunities to land one of the higher paying management level positions, the degree also teaches you skills in business, communications, finance and computer programming.
Your education in areas like computer application systems, information resource management and application program development can qualify you for jobs like entry level programmer, software developer, computer manager and information systems manager.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for computer and information systems managers is expected to grow faster than average up to 2018. Also, job openings for these positions are expected to be more numerous than job seekers.
