Beginning in March, the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management will become the first business school with a top-five MIS department to offer an online graduate degree program in this high-demand specialty.

Intended for those with information technology experience, the Eller MISonline program will focus on applying technology to achieve strategic objectives across sectors, including business, nonprofit and government. The online delivery is designed for working professionals who need to set their own schedules.

In addition to offering frequent, flexible start dates, the coursework follows a 7.5 week accelerated format. Online course content matches the MIS department’s top-five ranked full-time graduate program.

“Information technology permeates all sectors of society, impacting organizations and individuals in unprecedented ways, and producing vast amounts of data at great speed,” said Paulo Goes, head of the Eller MIS department.

“Advances such as cloud computing, mobility, sensors and social computing contribute to projections that data and content will continue to be generated at exponential rates over the next decade. Accordingly, the demand for professionals with the skills to manage, mine, analyze, interpret, store and secure that information is also growing.”

While completing their master’s degrees, students will concurrently earn graduate certificates in Enterprise Security and Business Intelligence and Analytics. The MIS department at Eller is designated a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education through the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.

The Eller college is internationally recognized for pioneering research, innovative curriculum, distinguished faculty, excellence in management information systems, entrepreneurship and social responsibility. U.S. News & World Report ranks the Eller undergraduate program No. 14 among public business schools and three of its programs are among the top 20 — Entrepreneurship, MIS and Management.

U.S. News & World Report ranks the Eller MBA Full-Time program No. 57 in the U.S. The college leads the nation’s business schools in generating grant funds for research.

In addition to a Full-Time MBA program, the Eller college offers an Evening MBA program and the Eller Executive MBA. The Eller collge supports more than 5,000 undergraduate and 600 graduate students on the UA campus.
