Tell us a little more about yourself.


Technology is speeding ahead, and your organization—not to mention your résumé—needs to keep pace. Now, from virtually anywhere in the world, you can upgrade your cybersecurity 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 your home. Our part-time delivery model pairs the flexibility of distance learning with the same access to world-class faculty enjoyed by our on-campus students.


Through our partnership with Women in CyberSecurity, Heinz College awards members of WiCyS a minimum scholarship of $7,000 per semester. Learn more about financial aid and scholarship opportunities.


The MSIT program is designed with working professionals in mind, delivered mostly via an asynchronous "Anytime, Anywhere" distance learning model for maximum flexibility. This approach allows MSIT students to customize their degree and complete the program on a schedule that fits into their lives

Career acceleration

Teaching data-driven management strategies, technological expertise, and an interdisciplinary curriculum, MSIT prepares you to lead digital transformation in your organization. If you are looking for a career boost with the latest skills, the brightest ideas, and the strongest networks available in an online program, then the Heinz College MSIT program is for you. Heinz College's Career Services office prepares its graduates for every aspect of the job search, from resumes to networking, and provides counsel to alumni long after graduation.
