Located as we are at the nexus of IT and Business, one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing technology communities in the United States. The School of Business and Technology offers comprehensive and robust programs to help students develop the necessary skills and insights to be leaders in technology fields and be ready for the jobs of tomorrow. 

Marymount's information technology (IT) program offers a solid foundation of knowledge across the system life cycle — defining requirements, developing software, administering and securing a computer network, and successfully managing IT projects. The curriculum addresses hardware, software, databases, networks, security, quality assurance, and project management.

Students in the Information Technology (B.S.) program are also prepared for industry-wide certifications, such as Net+ from CompTia, and Certified Software Tester (CSTE) from the QA Global Institute.  In addition, to learning the fundamentals of the information technology discipline, students also choose a specialty area of study, including:
