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 finding a great career. Students have access to recruiting events, an exclusive jobs database, and one-on-one consultations with their career coach, in addition to a career development course. These resources have yielded powerful results for MSIS graduates; see our most recent placements.
MSIS Capstone Project
MSIS students complete a capstone project as the culmination of their degree. The capstone project 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 semesters in the program, the capstone is worth three credit hours. Learn more about the capstone requirement.
In order to accommodate working professionals, MSIS courses are offered primarily 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), and students attending part-time graduate in 4 to 6 semesters (15-24 months). Full-time and part-time students have the same options for courses, and students are able to adjust their credit-hour enrollment semester-by-semester.
One of the greatest networking resources students find in the program are their fellow classmates. With the average professional work experience of our students at 4 to 5 years, students gain in experienced network in their field and enrich their classroom experience.
