The University of Cincinnati Launches Online Master's in Information Systems Program

The new program was created for professionals looking to accelerate their careers in IS and IT, as well as for those looking for their first experiences in the field.

The University of Cincinnati has officially launched its newest fully-online graduate program, the Master of Science in Information Systems (MS-IS). Ranked as a top 15 program in North America by EdUniversal Group, the online master's degree is offered through the Carl H. Lindner College of Business and primarily serves as an educational foundation for aspiring IT, data, software, and business intelligence analysts, as well as SAP consultants and data scientists.

Prerequisites for the program include a completed application, the submission of required transcripts, a completed KIRA interview, and the submission of a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score (a waiver can be sought). International applicants must submit an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score in addition to the aforementioned items.

"Our 100% online, asynchronous program is designed to be maximally flexible," said Jaime Windeler, Ph.D., assistant department head and associate professor, department of operations, business analytics, and information systems.

"At the same time, our new program provides more options for our current students whose educational plans were changed or disrupted by COVID."

The on-site MS-IS program has a distinguished track record, with most years seeing 100% of enrolled students employed upon graduation. Many of these students accept positions with reputable companies such as Accenture, General Electric, Google, and Microsoft, among others. 

"The number of open jobs far surpasses the number of IS professionals available to fill them," said Windeler. "This creates a high-choice job market for people with an MS in information systems and very competitive salaries."
