The Global MISM Track is a 21-month experience that allows students to access multiple job markets, including the United States, and gain an international perspective in their education. The Global MISM Track is structured as follows:
In 2006, Heinz College established a campus in Adelaide, South Australia with the intent of expanding its global footprint while offering its students the opportunity to gain an international perspective while they are in graduate school.
The Global MISM 21-Month Track continues to be a professionally focused program with the goal to provide its graduates with a competitive advantage leading to superior job placement in an increasingly competitive global job market. Students will be able to enroll in more courses overall while gaining an international perspective as a full-time graduate student. In addition, students will be eligible to complete their required summer internship in Australia or in their home country. Students choosing to remain in Adelaide for their internship following their second semester can work with companies like Google, TELSTRA, Santos and many other prominent IT companies in Australia.
In Australia, 39% of employers plan to increase full-time staff in information technology, according to a recent edition of The Hudson Report.
The MISM degree requires you to demonstrate proficiency in technology management, IT Strategy, and fundamental business skills.
The required courses are designed to build core competencies in integrating technology management with business expertise with courses ranging from Economic for IT to Object Oriented Programming in Java. As a student in the MISM program, you also have the flexibility to choose from a range of challenging elective courses designed to help you excel in an increasingly digital world.
Students in the one-year,16-month and 21-month track complete the same course requirements as described below.
If you have a strong background in any of the required courses, you can receive an exemption with permission of the instructor. Exempting a course doesn't reduce the required number of courses you must complete. However, you can add more elective courses to expand your knowledge base.
You'll also need a laptop during your enrollment period. Have your own or need to purchase one? Please read our technology requirements first.
