MSIT Mission Statement

The mission of the Master of Science in Information Technology Program (MSIT) is to prepare mid-career IT professionals to lead change in their organizations. Carnegie Mellon's MSIT is an elite graduate degree program that equips students with an integration of information technology and management skills.

Students in the MSIT program should be able to:

  • Combine management and technology skills gained in the classroom that can be directly applied in a professional IT environment; and
  • Create organizational value through the effective deployment of IT.

We achieve this mission through:

  • fine tuning our curriculum and our student selection to optimize our role of being a bridge between technology and management; and
  • enhancing the curriculum through the intelligent use of synchronous, distance and part-time learning practices; and
  • building and sustaining a culture that prizes entrepreneurship and innovation in information technology and its management and application.
