Masters Study

The Master of Science in Information Systems (I.S.) with a concentration in Health Informatics is designed to meet the needs of students who want to build a strong background in information systems and the application of information and communications technology in business. 

In today’s highly competitive global environment, the effective deployment of information technology has become the key to business success.
