MSIT Dual Degrees

The Heinz College MSIT Program has a dual degree partnership with Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Mexico (ITESM). Dual degree programs have distinct admissions requirements, please contact the Admissions office for more information.

Duration: 2.5 years

Working IT professionals in Mexico, Central America, and South America have the option of earning dual degrees in information technology management from Carnegie Mellon University and Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM). While the program is mainly completed online, there is a required week at both universities, giving students an exciting opportunity to network with peers and meet esteemed faculty while completing hands-on exercises.

The MSIT-MTI program is a unique and dynamic multi-cultural education for future technology leaders, culminating in two prestigious degrees from two renowned universities.

Degrees earned:

Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT)
Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College

Maestría en Administración de Tecnologías de Información (MTI)
Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, México


Students must complete applications for both Heinz College and ITESM and be accepted into both programs.

Heinz College application deadline: May 1 (online programs only)

ITESM application deadline: Rolling

MSIT-MTI applicants who submit all required materials to both institutions before Heinz College's May 1 deadline may receive early notification. Late applications will be accepted as long as seats remain in the class and sufficient time remains to register for mandatory MSIT-MTI orientation week on-campus at Carnegie Mellon University in July.

Please note MSIT-MTI is a dual degree program track, not an exchange/study abroad program.

Financial aid and scholarships are available for MSIT-MTI from both Heinz College and ITESM. Please contact each school's admissions office for more information.
