For decades IT has revolutionized the way business is conducted. It is an integral part of all business operations no matter the size, scope, or location of the enterprise. As a result, the Information Systems Technology program at George Washington University consistently attracts professionals from various industries such as healthcare, consulting, business management, and the technology sector. Many hold advanced degrees (MS, MA, MBA, M.D., J.D., and Ph.D.) and come from varied educational and career backgrounds. One unifying goal all students have in common is to expand their knowledge of technology, management and leadership theory and practice, and actively apply it to their current – or future – careers.
MSIST alumni are prominent in the federal and private sectors within the Washington DC metropolitan area, throughout the U.S., and internationally. The GW Tech Alumni group (GWTA) founded by program alumni in 2010, the GWSB Alumni group, and the F. David Fowler Career Center provide additional support. Alumni and current students alike benefit from the groups’ seminars, networking, and professional development events held throughout the year. In addition, both current students and alumni cite the opportunities to network with peers throughout the program as a significant professional development benefit.
The MSIST program is designed for working professionals and offers the traditional program on-campus or online. Students may complete the master’s degree in 18-24 months while studying part-time or full-time. Our faculty advisors help students design a program plan that suits their personal and professional needs.
Admission is competitive and prospective students are highly qualified, frequently exceeding minimum requirements. All MSIST formats culminate in a capstone project where teams plan, design, and develop a business-based information system.
