Application and Fees

MSIS welcomes a diverse cohort every year and we know that technology leaders come from many backgrounds. Historically many of our students have a non-technical bachelor’s degree. Applicants are selected not only for their potential to benefit from the program and additional technical training but also for the experience and knowledge they can contribute to the class.

All applicants are required to hold the minimum equivalent of a four-year baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university in the U.S. or its equivalent. You can review our full admission requirements on the MSIS Admissions webpage.
