Master of Science in Management Information Systems

Master Your Move Forward in IT

This program equips students with both the technical and business skills needed to manage an organization’s IT resources. The MS in Management Information Systems is a STEM-designated program and can also be pursued with a Graduate Certificate in Business Analytics, as a dual degree with the MBA, or in a part-time format. Additionally, Katz students may enhance their degree with one of several certificate programs offered by the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Computing and Information. There is a separate, additional application process required for students interested in pursuing a certificate.
