Why Master of I.S.?

Corporations need data analytics and knowledge of information systems now more than ever.  These positions are in high demand and come with generous pay.

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.

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.

The entire program is built on a foundation of problem-solving, student-centric experiences, and corporate involvement. The Master of Information Systems is a 33 semester-credit hour program. Of these, six hours are dedicated to an extensive Capstone project designed for the program participant by his/her sponsoring organization. The remaining 27 credit hours include course work in the front line of Information Systems domains.

“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.”
