Starting in Fall 2014, Monmouth University will offer a Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS), a unique degree program that educates students on how to apply computing technology to business programs. With courses offered through the School of Science and the Leon Hess Business School, the MSIS prepares students for employment in the IT sector at a management level.
An "information system" is a bridge between computing and business; it supports business operations and management. In business today, the use of technology not only improves decision-making, but it also enables businesses to streamline their operations and compete more effectively in the marketplace. As a result, the management of information systems is an integral part in virtually every business unit-from healthcare and high-technology to restaurants and retail.
The MSIS also allows students to gain full and thorough training in information systems, which can be used as a basis for pursuing certifications such as the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional), PMP (Project Management Professional) and CSDP (Certified Software Development Professional).
