The MSIM approach
The MSIM curriculum features a highly interdisciplinary approach to the study of information management, with the aim of developing strong practitioners in the field. Students learn to use information to set organizational strategy and improve productivity, and to help individuals make better use and sense of the information they encounter in their everyday lives.
6 in-demand specializations
MSIM students can tailor their elective coursework to their career goals and interests, with many choosing to complete at least one three-course sequence in a specific area of specialization. Elective courses are offered in six areas of specialization in high demand among employers.
3 pathways to the degree
The MSIM program is offered on three tracks. Early-Career and Early-Career Accelerated options complement a bachelor’s degree in any academic discipline by opening new doors for career possibilities. For working professionals with five years or more of relevant professional experience, the Mid-Career option enables you to keep your current job while you pursue a master’s degree to advance your career.
