The Department of CIS&BSAN is an academic unit of the College of Business and has 22 full-time faculty members, over 450 majors, and more than 100 minors in either computer information systems or business analytics.  The department places a primary emphasis on its undergraduate degree program that includes hands-on projects, laboratory exercises, case analyses, and business simulations designed to prepare graduates to work independently and in team-oriented environments.

In addition to high involvement in undergraduate education, departmental faculty members play a vital role in the delivery of the College's Innovation MBA and Information Security MBA programs.  Outside the academic community, faculty members maintain strong connections with the consulting industry in Northern Virginia and Richmond, and interact regularly with members of the department's advisory board.

The College of Business is accredited by AACSB International, and in 2013, Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranked the College's undergraduate program 29th overall in the U.S. and 11th among all public undergraduate business schools. In addition, the computer information systems major is accredited by ABET, and in 2013, Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranked the CIS program as the 10th best in the nation.
