Focus on big data and tech consulting and advance your career with an ASU master’s

For four consecutive years, Arizona State University has been ranked as the most innovative school in the country by U.S. News & World Report. Now put that innovation to work for your career with the Master of Science in Information Management (MS-IM) from ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business.

The 12-month program has been developed by the W. P. Carey School’s Department of Information Systems, itself ranked Top 15 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The curriculum applies knowledge to cases and assignments aligned to industry trends, with input from faculty who have decades of real-world experience and corporate members of the department’s advisory board. That means you’ll receive more than a diploma: You’ll get an education that prepares you to face challenges immediately and throughout your career.

Two distinct learning formats

Because the MS-IM is calibrated to the needs of working professionals, learning happens where and when it’s convenient for you. Choose from an on-campus option at ASU’s Tempe campus with classes two nights a week, or a hybrid of online coursework and three on-campus residencies. No matter which path you choose, the MS-IM can be completed in only 12 months.

Add focus to propel your career

Specializations add to the MS-IM core curriculum to deliver the depth you need in a specific field, so you can create a blueprint for your career. Responding to industry demand, MS-IM specializations in big data and tech consulting will develop the skills that hiring companies desire most, and additional specializations will be added based on industry trends. Even if you plan to stay with your current organization   but especially if you’re looking for a new chapter in your career   the MS-IM specializations will give you a powerful advantage as you move forward.

Additionally, a recent investment by the W. P. Carey Foundation allocates $15 million to career services, meaning better and wider access to employers, job postings, career coaching, and more.

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.
