Companies heavily reply upon their computer information systems (CIS) infrastructure to efficiently run their operations. As a result, there are many job opportunities for skilled CIS professionals. CIS systems are designed to collect, process, store, and relay information.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has projected significant job growth in the CIS industry through 2012. Job growth for network administrators, computer systems and network analysts should increase by 30 percent or more in the near future, according to the BLS. These professionals usually earn more than $60,000 a year.
Most companies hiring CIS specialists seek candidates who’ve graduated from an accredited CIS or related college program. Those successfully completing one of these programs should have many job opportunities to choose from.
The curriculum of most CIS bachelor’s programs consists of the following classes: systems analysis, computer programming languages, database management, communications, computer networking, and numerous other courses related to CIS.
