Database Administration

(MS Information Technology)

A database administrator (DBA) is in charge of the database installation, development, storage, security, and backup. DBAs generally become experts in the specific Database Management Systems used to implement the databases in the enterprise.

DBAs often work in tandem with network systems professionals and with information systems users; therefore some coursework in these areas is also preferred, to understand the system architecture and the users’ information requirements.
