Career Paths

The high competence and great diversity of the faculty and students helps to keep our MSIS programs consistently at a high level of excellence. Employment prospects are high.  Our students are problem solvers that can manage systems and also create and implement innovation. We maintain rigorous standards and U.S. and international businesses, many of which have their headquarters in New Jersey, know the quality of our graduates. Graduates of the MSIS programs have been placed in worthy positions (e.g., analysts, associates, consultants, strategists, etc.) in important organizations across sectors (e.g., government, technology, financial services, consulting, manufacturing, non-profit, and academia).


Furthermore, the department is ever increasing its partner relationships with a number of organizations seeking to establish internship programs that allow students to obtain initial industry experience.
