Are you a B.S. in Informatics student who’s focused, motivated, and interested in helping traditional industries implement their digital plans? You can get your master’s degree in as few as two semesters with the Accelerated Master of Science in Information Systems program.
A partnership between SICE and the IU Kelley School of Business, this program gives you the opportunity to bridge the gap between your undergraduate education and workplace expectations. You’ll likely begin your career with a higher starting salary, and you’ll have the skills to rapidly move up to a leadership role.
