Designed to provide the advanced education necessary to manage the technology of business, the David Eccles School of Business Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) program offers business education with a practical slant. Industry-driven coursework and opportunities for hands-on experience prepare our graduates for leadership positions in one of the fastest-growing job sectors in the world. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts a 15 percent growth for employment in the IS/IT industry from 2014 to 2024.
Companies in the private and public sectors need information systems (IS) executives, analysts and specialists with business and technology knowledge to align information technology with business strategies. Our information systems curriculum is designed to offer courses that integrate technology into business processes.
The MSIS program offers students advanced graduate specializations in a variety of today’s hottest IT fields, including Business Intelligence and Analytics, Software and Systems Architecture, Product and Process Management and IT Security. Each concentration offers Eccles School students a unique competitive advantage that will prepare them for high-level leadership positions in major corporations.
What’s more, the MSIS program is a time of powerful networking for our students, who benefit from our close-knit alumni community and established relationships with local and national companies. Perhaps equally important are the relationships formed with peers — experienced professors and accomplished classmates — that last a lifetime.
Whether you’re interested in a full-time or part-time format, you’ll complete the MSIS program with the network, knowledge and capabilities needed for visionary technology leadership.
