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 program with a convenient blended education approach that can be completed in one year. Students spend four on-campus residencies and complete the remaining course work using our proprietary e-learning modules prepared by experts in their fields. The modules are presented using a combination of synchronous and asynchronous course delivery modes.

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 other business and IT leaders and accomplish capstone projects to address real-life 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 Information Systems domains.
