The Information Systems (IS) concentration covers essential information systems concepts and methods to prepare graduates for positions such as business analyst or project manager. Students learn how to analyze and define information systems requirements in various business situations and much like architects, let others build them. Students are not expected to have previous course work or experience with information systems. For students with previous IS experience, the curriculum can be customized in consultation with the Graduate IS Program Administrator for each degree candidate depending on experience, previous education, and preferred career path.
Two characteristics make the IS concentration unique: flexibility and technological currency.
Flexibility is achieved by program requirements that vary from student to student, and are determined personally for each degree candidate depending on experience, previous education, and preferred career path.
Technological currency is achieved through close interaction with practice, and DePaul's traditional responsiveness to student and industry needs.
