Program overview

As technology becomes more interconnected across functions and skills, the ability to understand and interpret technological solutions to business problems — and the leadership required to bring about those solutions — are not merely desired attributes. They are required skills for anyone in the technology space.

The Hybrid MS-IM from ASU's W. P. Carey School of Business not only allows you to do coursework or engage in class discussions wherever you are and whenever it’s convenient for you, but also introduces key course material through on-campus residencies. The residencies are expected to be two to three days long on ASU’s Tempe campus, and foster both the immediate exchange of ideas between students from all over the world and leading faculty and a stronger sense of belonging and community.

In addition to the Hybrid MS-IM format, an on-campus MS-IM is available, to accommodate the busy schedules of working professionals, with classes held two nights a week on ASU’s Tempe campus.

Merit scholarships and travel assistance are available to qualified students, helping you reduce the financial burden of returning to school.

Career outcomes

With information security analysts and computer and information systems careers expected to grow faster or much faster than average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for MS-IM graduates will be strong. More than 75,000 new jobs in these fields are projected by 2026. Potential careers for MS-IM graduates include chief intelligence officer, senior data analyst, business systems analyst, and project manager. The leadership skills acquired through this program will prepare students to lead in a wide range of industries, including financial services, health care, marketing, and technology.
