Dual MBA and MS in Computer Science and Information Systems

Through cross-recognition of courses between the MBA and MS in Computer Science and Information Systems program, this dual master’s program will require 15 less credit hours to complete than if the degrees were completed independently of each other. The program leads to two degrees: a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a concentration in Computer Information Systems and a Master of Science (MS) in Computer Science and Information Systems with a concentration in Information Systems.

This dual master’s program is available in a traditional, on-campus format or through a format that combines the Management courses in the NetPlus! format (online with on-campus sessions every six weeks) with the Computer Science and Information Systems courses in the multi-media Cyber Classroom format (tailored to the student’s, needs from completely online to completely on-campus).
