The Master of Science in information quality (MSIQ) is a career-oriented program focusing on practice, skills, and theory. Ranked among the top online master’s in computer information technology programs by U.S. News and World Report, the 33-hour program is designed to prepare students for careers in industry and government as well as advanced graduate studies.
The curriculum balances information quality theory with industry best practices using state-of-the-art tools and technology. It is based on the Model Curriculum and Guidelines for Graduate Degree Programs in Information Systems endorsed by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and Association for Information Systems (AIS). The course content has been developed with the support of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Information Quality Program, based at the MIT Center for Technology, Policy, and Industrial Development, and with additional help from leading practitioners and researchers within the information quality community.
All required courses are offered online via live webcast (synchronous) and taught by highly qualified doctoral-level faculty with extensive experience in the field. Students have the option to complete either a project or a thesis for their capstone.
