Bachelor of Business Administration, Information Systems Management

The Brandman MyPath programs are made up of three parts. The first involves general education curriculum in which you learn basic concepts from a variety of fields. You will then move on to the business core material that represents the Brandman BBA learning outcomes of accounting, economics and finance, business law and ethics, strategy, information technology, management, leadership and marketing. The final part of the program focuses on the emphasis of your choice.

As technology continues to drive productivity in today’s global economy, information systems are quickly becoming the most critical components of business operations. Brandman University’s competency-based Bachelor of Business Administration with an emphasis in Information System Management prepares students to create technological efficiencies that propel their businesses in the digital age. Graduates will be able to demonstrate understandings of computer systems organization, databases, networking, programming, security, and project management.

Why Brandman MyPath?

Effective business leaders must also be able to effectively direct teams to execute activities to meet scheduled milestones, which is why Brandman included project management as part of the program’s emphasis competencies. Students will be trained on systems analysis and learn how to leverage applications and tools for process planning and execution. Programming competencies are also built into the curriculum with students expected to create either mobile or web-based business applications. All of these concepts provide solid foundations for students to advance their business careers and become effective information systems managers within their industries. 

Brandman’s admission process is designed to help determine if the Brandman MyPath Competency-based, online academic model fits your needs. To be considered for entry, you must meet the following minimum requirements, although completing these does not guarantee admission into the program:


0-11 transferrable credits:

  • Official High School transcript with graduation date or an official copy of GED
  • High school minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or equivalent
  • Passing scores on the English and Math admissions tests is required

12 or more transferable credits:

  • 2.0 GPA in all prior college coursework
  • Submit official transcripts of all prior academic work completed at all colleges or universities attended

Transfer Credit Policy

Once admissibility is determined, you will meet with your personal academic coach to discuss, among other items, articulation/transferability of prior coursework. Your qualified transfer credits will then be evaluated for clearance of competencies through the following methodology:

  1. Prior coursework, with a minimum of B- or better from regionally accredited institutions will first be evaluated against Brandman’s credit hour-based courses.
  2. Once prior credit has been determined to be equivalent to Brandman’s credit hour-based program, the university will then determine whether or not you will receive transfer credit for any of the competencies in the Brandman MyPath program.
  3. Transfer credit for competencies will not be granted for prior coursework where the content addresses some, but not all, of the content for a particular competency or block of competencies.
