TECHNOLOGY ISN’T BOUND BY GEOGRAPHY. NEITHER ARE YOU.
Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) — Online Programs
Technology is speeding ahead and your organization—not to mention your resume—needs to keep pace. Now, from virtually anywhere in the world, you can upgrade your IT and management skills with a Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) from Heinz College.
That means you don’t need to be in Pittsburgh to learn from the best at Carnegie Mellon University. You don’t need to leave your job, or even leave home. Our part-time, asynchronous delivery model pairs the flexibility of distance learning with the same access to world-class faculty enjoyed by our on-campus students.
Teaching data-driven management strategies, technological expertise, key communication methods, and an interdisciplinary curriculum featuring four high-demand focus areas, we prepare graduates to tackle IT challenges and lead digital transformation in their organizations.
Technology permeates all sectors of the economy and our MSIT student body reflects that. A major benefit of the program is that students from diverse organizations and sectors share ideas and are able to experiment with those ideas the very next day at work.
The student mix in MSIT is a combination of high-performing early career professionals and seasoned executives. It is typical, for example, for a software engineer from a tech company and an IT executive from a large pharmaceutical organization to collaborate on a study team. This type of collaboration leads to career acceleration for both.
If you are looking for a career boost with the latest skills, the brightest ideas, and the strongest networks available in an online IT program, then the Heinz College MSIT is for you.
