We're educating our students to distribute their IT management skills worldwide
As an IT professional, you work in a fast-paced, dynamic business environment. You've probably already experienced the feeling that the technical skills that once set you apart from other business professionals are no longer unique. They may even be outdated.
Or, maybe you've climbed the technical career ladder and now manage teams of IT professionals. Your technical background allows you to direct and lead these teams, but your supervisors are expecting ever greater business-oriented justification for your decisions. Your analysis, design, and implementation skills are little help in preparing a presentation to the executive board of your organization.
Designed with the input of IT professionals like you, the online MS in MIS will update your skills and business knowledge. All students complete a seven-course "MIS core" that covers project management, management of technology, knowledge management and business intelligence, electronic business, and social and organizational issues related to information systems. If you need to update your general management skills, you may take up to four courses through FSU's online MBA curriculum. If you are a technology specialist, you will take our advanced courses in systems analysis, database design, and telecommunications.
And here's the good news: You will take these courses without leaving your job or relocating to Tallahassee. Unlike other online programs, you receive the same material from the same professors teaching on-campus courses. You do the same work. Your degree is exactly the same as an on-campus degree. You can complete the degree in two calendar years by taking two courses per semester.
There are two ways to complete the online MS in MIS program. All students will complete a set of seven core courses, along with specific concentration courses. The two concentrations are as follows:
- Advanced Technology Concentration
- Managerial Concentration
