Information has a powerful effect on the contemporary enterprise. Digital innovation and ever-rising competitive pressure confront the strategist with complex new challenges every day. In such environments, technically-skilled professionals can promote sustained value creation and enterprise resiliency through mastery of key elements – digital technologies, big data, and policy - that shape strategic decision-making on the ground.
The Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) graduate degree program at the iSchool is designed to help students master the complexities of digital transformation. Through rigorous coursework and hands-on critical engagement of challenges in the classroom and in the field, MSIS students learn by designing and developing digital applications, devising management strategy, crunching big data for insights, and evaluating the implications of policy from economic, social, and ethical perspectives.
The iSchool at Syracuse University is a leading center for defining both the theory and practice of information and technology management. The MSIS graduate program, like the iSchool itself, is highly interdisciplinary in focus, combining interests in digital technology, enterprise strategy, organizational psychology and design, data analytics, economics, public policy, and human-computer interaction.
