For me, coming to the MSIT program was about fast-tracking my career. Before the program, I felt lost in a lot of the conversation about networks and other parts of IT, so I needed to better understand it. I had a promotion within a few months of the end of the program, and was hired into management.



Watch as professor and program director Dr. Randall Berry discusses the value of the MSIT degree.

Our part- and full-time program teaches students and working professionals the necessary skills to:

Implement better IT solutions that reflect the demands of today's evolving marketplace

Understand the cross-functional perspective of information technology and its place in business operations

Bridge the gap between fundamental technologies and business strategies

Lead information technology teams and projects

My job is network management, and what I learned in the MSIT program about the whole optical space of telecommunications helps me talk intelligently with customers about things like "the big pipes." I've been in telecommunications for 20+ years, but now I have a deeper understanding of how it works. I've learned how to properly frame questions, and I've expanded my ability to find solutions.
