The David Eccles School of Business offers professional career management services and an MSIS senior career coach to provide students with guidance on all aspects of building a great career. Students have access to recruiting events, an exclusive jobs database, one-on-one consultations with their career coach, and a career development course. These resources have yielded powerful results for MSIS graduates. See our most recent placements.
MSIS students complete a capstone as the culmination of their degree. The capstone is an opportunity for students to put their classroom knowledge to work by completing a complex, consulting-based information systems project or an approved IT certification. Completed over two to three semesters, the capstone is worth three credit hours. Learn more about the capstone requirement.
To accommodate working professionals, MSIS courses are held in the evenings, with most starting at 6 p.m. Students also have the option to take a number of MSIS courses online and can enroll in a mix of in-person or online classes each semester.
Full-Time and Part-Time Options
MSIS students can attend the program full-time or part-time. Students attending full-time can complete the program in 3 semesters (12 months); students attending part-time complete in 4 to 6 semesters (15-24 months). Full-time and part-time students have the same course options, and students are able to adjust their course load semester-by-semester.
One important benefit of the program is the opportunity to build a professional network with fellow students. With the average professional work experience of MSIS students being 4 to 5 years in a wide variety of roles and sectors, students can build a diverse network that will provide support and facilitate access to opportunities throughout their careers.
