This program is on PAUSE for Fall 2020

The COVID-19 global health pandemic has had significant impact on the global economy and a wide variety of sectors and industries—including higher education. During these unprecedented times, the rapid changes in market demands and shifts in consumer behavior continue to reshape the landscape for graduate business education. In response, we have made the decision to place several of business masters programs on PAUSE for the next academic year—including the MS in Information Technology (MSIT). As a result, we will not admit an MSIT class for fall 2020, but look forward to returning in fall 2021. While the MSIT is on PAUSE, our faculty and administrators are working hard to analyze market changes to redesign a more enhanced and adaptable program.

We understand that the timing of this announcement is not ideal and that you may be interested in beginning your Gabelli School MS program earlier than fall 2021. Our admissions team would be happy to connect with you directly to discuss our portfolio of business masters programs in alignment with your career goals and professional aspirations.

We sincerely hope you will continue to explore our MS programs at the Gabelli School of Business. We look forward to working with you to continue your program exploration.

 


 

STEM Program

It’s one thing to graduate from an information technology program with technical knowledge.

It’s quite another to graduate with vision.

It takes a lot of technically proficient IT professionals to design and maintain the systems that drive e-commerce, cloud computing, and big data. But ultimately companies are looking for people who also get the big picture.

How can technology be used to innovate business models?

Where are the biggest opportunities for technological disruption?

Which trends will deliver lasting value to the bottom line?

At the Gabelli School, we give students the economic and business context they need to answer those questions and take a leadership role in IT. Graduates of our Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) program are well-positioned not only to enter this field, but also to grow into management roles at top companies.

Full-time and Part-time Options

The MSIT has two schedule choices:

  • A one-year full-time program
  • A part-time program spread over a longer time frame, ideal for professionals who don’t want to leave their jobs while they pursue the degree

MSIT Overview

The Gabelli School MSIT provides skills in:

  • Digital innovation strategy
  • Data management, including database design and implementation, and data warehousing
  • Data mining and data analytics, including big data management
  • Documenting systems requirements and translating those requirements into design
  • Project management
  • IT security management
  • IT network management
  • IT applications to specific industries
  • Accounting information systems

The Gabelli School Edge

Gabelli School MSIT graduates hit the job market with a keen understanding of the transformational role of technology and all the skills needed to find and exploit value opportunities for organization

Ideal Candidates

Our MSIT program is designed for students who are interested in exploring the intersection of technology and business.

If you’re fascinated by big data, cloud computing, digital product development, or e-commerce, this degree would be a good fit. A tech background is not necessary, but it’s helpful to have a basic awareness of the role of IT in supporting organizational processes and strategy.
