Information Systems Program Description
The Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) is designed for Information Systems professionals who want to advance into leadership roles in their organizations or start their own business or consultancy, business professionals who want to leverage their expertise in functional areas, recognizing that advances in Information Systems are changing every part of an organization, and professionals who want to update their skills and learn the newest Information Systems concepts and tools so their organizations can succeed in the global marketplace. <br> <br>The proposed modification would create an online option in the existing program, enabling the program and existing areas of concentration to be delivered via distance education; and modifying courses to ensure students in the online program will take the same courses and from the same faculty as students enrolled in campus-based courses. Students enrolled in the proposed program will have a choice among face to face sections, online courses, or a combination of both, in a hybrid modality. <br>
