Program Description:

The Master of Information Systems program is designed for working professionals who cannot always take time from work to enhance their education. We offer a high-value one-year program with a convenient blended education approach. Students spend four on-campus residencies and complete the remaining course work using our proprietary e-learning modules prepared by experts in their fields.

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.
