Information Technology, MS
The advancements in the field of Information Technology have revolutionized nearly every facet of human existence. Individuals and organizations of all types communicate, connect, collaborate, and compete by means of increasingly sophisticated computer networks, systems, and devices. In a rapidly globalizing economy, the knowledge of how to deploy IT assets effectively to manage customer relationships, data collection and analysis, supply chains, work flows, or security concerns can make the difference between success and failure for individual managers and entire corporations.
The coursework for the MSIT is grouped around three key clusters:
Technical Foundation of Information Technology
Applications of Information Technology
Information Technology Management and Strategy
Coursework and student resources help students develop the communications, presentation, and analytical skills, as well as the technical, quantitative, and decision-making abilities, required of contemporary managers. The MSIT program is committed to the success of all its students, both academically and professionally, and to providing the individual attention and support that make their accomplishments a reality.
To receive the MSIT, students must complete a total of 14 courses through coursework or waiver; students with a Bachelor’s degree in IT or a closely related field may be able to waive up to three courses (9 credits) from the required Business Core.
