The Master of Information Systems degree is designed to meet the educational needs of managerial and technical employees who have IT budgetary, management, or decision-making responsibilities.
Our program curriculum focuses on a problem-solving approach to information management and uses a rich blend of real-life experiences, case material, and simulations through innovative, relevant, and rigorous curriculum taught by outstanding faculty and industry experts with a blend of technical and managerial skills. Students learn alongside with other business and IT leaders and accomplish capstone projects to address real problems and return value to their company.
Focused on ROI
To lead a business enterprise, you need to control your business operations and directly influence IT solutions. You need to lead every aspect of your business processes. IT is an enabler, not a solution in and of itself. This program is tailored to put you in charge of your company’s IT resources - rather than IT controlling you.
“This program provides the required blend of strategic, practical, and hands-on content that is not only relevant to IT leaders, but critical to their success.” – David Hoskins, CIO, Dayton Power & Light.
