As the relationship between technology and managerial effectiveness becomes more apparent, organizations have a greater need for professionals who can both assess their needs and design solutions.
The MS in Information Systems program, originally offered in 1986, was the first of its kind in the New York metropolitan area. The curriculum was recently revised to reflect growth in the information systems field and the emergence of various subdisciplines. After completing foundation and core course work, students declare a knowledge area for a 9-credit specialization. Options include Security and Information Assurance, Telecommunications Management and Technologies, and Database Management and Technologies.
This graduate degree program benefits both students new to the field as well as working IS professionals. Those with experience or an undergraduate degree in information systems may waive from one to four foundation courses, take additional electives, and complete the program with fewer than the maximum of 42 credits.
The program culminates in a capstone project that integrates all that the student has learned in the course of pursuing the degree.
With the help of Pace's 25-year-old Cooperative Education program and other career services, graduates are successful in finding rewarding employment in the field.
