Ideal Balance

Unlike pure MBA and MIS educations, or more traditional research-based PhD programs, the MSIT strikes an ideal balance for IT professionals seeking to learn technical fundamentals and forward-thinking business applications

Meet the program's Co-Director, Randall Berry.

Dr. Berry shares his thoughts on the research that won him an appointment to the Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and what the IEEE is all about.

We have moved

On September 5th, 2014 the MSIT Program moved to the McCormick Education Center, a shared space with other professional master's programs (MEM and MSIA). This is a brand new building with great amenities including up to date smart classrooms, breakout rooms and in-building parking.

Our door is open

You are welcome to sit in on a class, connect with alumni and speak to one of the directors or program coordinator at any time. If you have questions, concerns or are just curious don't hesitate to contact us.

About Us

Northwestern University’s Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) program is uniquely designed for information technology professionals who want to improve and broaden their technical skills, while learning the application of business principles. This combined skill set defines MSIT graduates — the ability to bridge the gap between fundamental technologies and business strategies — ensuring that they bring impactful value to the business. 

The classes in the MSIT program, with its 70% technical and 30% business and management curriculum, are taught by tenured Northwestern professors from a number of disciplines and departments, as well as IT industry leaders. Both the part-time and full-time MSIT options give IT professionals a cross-functional perspective of information technology and its place in business operations, ultimately helping them implement better IT solutions that reflect the demands of today's evolving marketplace.
