Master Programs

The MS in Information Systems fits your career path if it involves running an IT organization or managing information effectively through information systems. In today's environment, information systems (IS) are planned, operated and maintained not only by IS departments but also by IS-user organizational units. Because of this reality, career opportunities for IS graduates are found in both traditional IS departments and IS-user business units. Moreover, a variety of equipment from aircraft to household electronics frequently use embedded systems. Graduates of IS majors find opportunities in organizations that plan, design and market the functionality of these systems. Thus, our MS-IS emphasizes the balance between technical skills, modeling proficiency, as well as strategic and organizational knowledge for a wide range of IS usage contexts.
