UNM Anderson Offers New Master's Degree

Beginning in January the Anderson School of Management will offer a Master of Science in Information Systems and Assurance (MS-ISA), a new degree program for students with computer-related undergraduate degrees from management, computer science, and engineering.

The MS-ISA degree prepares students for advanced career positions in information systems development, system administration, computer and network security, data analytics, forensic investigations, and IT auditing. Statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor show job opportunities in many of these areas are growing faster than average with salaries ranging from $70,000 - $120,000.

Dr. Stephen Burd, MS-ISA Director, says that the MS-ISA at UNM is unique in that students can mix and match courses to focus on one technology area or combine courses from multiple areas to best match their career objectives.
