Specializing your degree can help you build the specific skills you need for your desired career path and give you an edge in a competitive job market. After taking core courses in information systems, you may choose to stay on a general degree track or specialize your education in Business Intelligence or Cybersecurity and Information Assurance.
Business intelligence systems combine data with analytical tools to present complex technical information in a usable format. With this degree specialization, you will learn how to analyze business data to make strategic decisions and better understand future market directions, regulatory environment, and actions of competitors. You’ll dive deep into course topics including text analytics, data warehousing, predictive analytics, and business intelligence in finance and healthcare.
Cybersecurity and Information Assurance
Cybersecurity is an issue of increasing importance to our global society, as businesses and government organizations work to secure private information and protect against security breaches. If you specialize your MSIS degree in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance, you will learn how to utilize data to create effective security solutions and prevent cyberattacks. You’ll hone your cybersecurity skills through course topics in network design, Python programming, cloud computing, ethical hacking, and more.
If you’re looking to earn a master’s degree in information systems that has a broader focus, you are welcome to select a general track instead of our two specialization options. When you choose to complete your MSIS degree with a general track, you will select approved courses in business, computer science, civil engineering, and GIS to meet your degree requirements. Your advisor will work with you to create a degree plan that helps you build a strong foundation for a successful career in business and technology.
