The MSIT program is committed to helping its students progress in their careers whether it be advancing in their current companies or taking their career in a new direction. MSIT graduates who stay with their current employer are typically promoted to positions with more responsibility, managing more people, or taking on more sophisticated project management responsibilities. Many graduates also find that the program exposes them to new areas of IT and business, leading to new job interest and career growth opportunities.
Immediate working world application
As the students are allowed to customize the program to fit their desired area of specialization or concentration, assignments from class often have direct and immediate applicability to the students work-life. MSIT provides a series of tools, techniques, and perspectives, often revealing issues that are underlying the student's current work situation.
The MSIT program, in collaboration with the Student Advisory Board, sponsors activities to develop leadership opportunities for current students and alumni. In addition, an active student and alumni group, the MSIT Alumni Association, holds networking events throughout the year.
