The technology of better business.

The rapid evolution of technology demands a new generation of talented, tech-centric business leaders equipped with the knowledge to anticipate change and leverage it to make their organizations smarter. The Johns Hopkins MS in Information Systems meets that need, challenging technology professionals to integrate their business expertise with the technical components of developing, managing, and deploying information systems.

In the MS in Information Systems program, you’ll use the latest tools and techniques to:

  • Develop the knowledge, confidence, and judgment to lead change in a dynamic industry
  • Use information technology to improve decision-making and increase organizational effectiveness
  • Manage complex business and information system challenges
  • Identify new technologies with market potential
  • Leverage technology to gain a strategic advantage

The MS in Information Systems is offered part-time in Washington, D.C., and is ideal for working professionals with at least two years of experience.   

Learning for the human network.

While the program was designed for technology professionals, it’s not exclusive to them. The MS in Information Systems offers a valuable experience for students from other fields who want to enhance their understanding of technology’s role in business while positioning themselves to stand out in the job market. You’ll connect with faculty—leading experts in the industry—as well as a cohort of peers who are driven to make business better through technology. Many of our graduates have found that the relationships they’ve developed here positively impact their personal and professional lives for years to come.
