About

The Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) is an innovative two-year degree program designed to meet the ever-changing needs of today's businesses. With more and more programming positions being outsourced to overseas companies it is more important than ever that U.S. based workers develop the skills and attain the knowledge required to remain and excel in the technology field.

The University of Redlands School of Business discusses current topics with top academics and conducts surveys of prominent industry leaders. Through this process, one is assured that students will learn current in-demand skill sets while gaining a broad-based education with a solid ethical foundation to enable them to grow and excel throughout their lives.

The MSIT program prepares graduates to take high-profile, leadership roles in planning, designing, implementing and managing strategic IT/IS. The program is less technical and primarily focused on providing key management abilities. Graduates will be equipped to deploy and manage effectively the technology, people and process involved in a complex and constantly changing business environment.
