Mission Statement

The mission of the Master of Information Systems Management program is to prepare the next generation of technology managers to lead enterprises in innovative ways. Schooled in the inter-disciplinary Carnegie Mellon tradition and trained as analytical problem solvers, our graduates will develop and deploy IT to create value for their organizations and society.

Students in the MISM program should be able to:

  • Integrate business, strategy, and technical skills that can be directly applied in complex business situations; and
  • Function effectively in diverse groups and operate in an increasingly connected world.

We achieve this mission through:

  • fine-tuning our curriculum and our student selection to be a bridge between technology and management;
  • providing curricular and meta curricular opportunities to apply IT/business leadership skills;
  • engaging with organizations globally as an important element of education and research;
  • building and sustaining a culture that prizes entrepreneurship and innovation in information technology and its management and application.
