Information Systems Excelling on the Heights

Choose one of three optional concentrations to add cutting-edge, industry-led and career-enhancing content to your study while earning a full MSIS degree.

The MSIS Program

Our 33-credit hour MSIS degree requires core courses (18 credit hours) and a capstone research/project course (3 credit hours). If you do not pursue a concentration, you will also need to compete elective courses (12 credit hours). Otherwise, you'll take concentration courses (9 credit hours) and an elective (3 credit hours). The program is a "HYFLEX" format, allowing you to attend class in-person, virtually, synchronously or asynchronously. You can also study full-time or part-time, with program completion in as little as one calendar year.

MSIS Concentrations

Choose from artificial intelligence, business intelligence or digital marketing to enhance your degree. Artificial Intelligence provides hands-on skill development in robotic process automation (RPA), machine learning, deep learning and Python coding, among other things. Business Intelligence provides hands-on experience with the tools and methods important for data-driven decision-making. Digital Marketing is designed for students who wish to pursue a more well-rounded digital marketing career.

Partnership with SU iSchool

Any MSIS student is eligible to secure an MSIS degree with a concentration in information security management or data science from Syracuse University's iSchool at a reduced tuition rate.

MSIS Courses

The MSIS curriculum is designed to develop highly educated information and computer systems professionals, particularly those responsible for information systems development and management.

MSIS Immersive Research Opportunities

Research Fellows work closely with a Le Moyne faculty mentor while conducting hands-on research in information systems, either on campus at Le Moyne or in the field.

IS Graduate Pathway Program

If you’re an undergraduate exploring options, consider the 4+1 express path to earning an M.S.

STEM OPT Eligible

Qualifying international students who are F-1 visa holders and receive science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) degrees may apply for a 24-month extension of their post-completion optional practical training (OPT), meaning they can receive two extra years of visa-free work in the U.S. upon graduation.
