Master of Science in Information Systems

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS), Master of Science in Management Information Systems (MSMIS) is a specialized master's degree program usually offered in a University's College of Business and in the recent years in integrated Information Science & Technology colleges. The MSIS degree is designed for those managing information technology, especially the information systems development process.[1][2] The MSIS degree is functionally equivalent to a Master of Information Systems Management, which is one of several specialized master's degree programs recognized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).[3]

A joint committee of Association for Information Systems (AIS) and Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) members develop a model curriculum for the Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS). The most recent version of the MSIS Model Curriculum was published in 2006.[4]

The course of study is concentrated around the Information Systems discipline. The core courses are (typically) Systems analysis, Systems design, Data Communications, Database design, and Project management.

Job Outlook[edit]

In regard to the job outlook for workers in this field, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has said, "Employment of computer and information systems managers is expected to grow 17 percent over the 2008-18 decade, which is faster than the average for all occupations. New applications of technology in the workplace will continue to drive demand for workers, fueling the need for more managers. To remain competitive, firms will continue to install sophisticated computer networks and set up more complex intranets and websites. They will need to adopt the most efficient software and systems and troubleshoot problems when they occur. Computer and information systems managers will be needed to oversee these functions."[5]

U.S. News & World Report also recognizes the robust job opportunities in this field in their article 50 Best Careers for 2010, they state, "There seems to be no end to organizations' appetite for advanced or improved data communications technology. And E-commerce continues to increase the need for systems analysts."[6]
