North Carolina Central University, the historically Black educational institution in Durham, has announced that is offering new bachelor’s degree in computer science and business. The interdisciplinary program will be jointly administered by the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Business.
The program is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2015. Donna Grant, associate professor of computer information systems in the School of Business will serve as program director.
“Industries are looking for people who are well-rounded with solid oral and written communication skills and an understanding of business, but they also need to be able to offer real solutions to problems,” said Dr. Grant.
Dr. Grant is a graduate of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. She holds a master’s degree, an MBA, and a Ph.D. from DePaul University in Chicago.
