Program Description:

Our mission is to integrate quality instruction in information systems and operations management with relevant research and professional services. This integration will help students develop an appropriate background and critical skills needed to function effectively in a global, technology-driven environment. We strive to fulfill this mission as an integral part of the Bryan School of Business and Economics and in support of its mission and purposes. Our chief goal is to provide top-tier information systems and operations management programs in North Carolina as assessed by employers of our graduates. The MSITM program combines technological and managerial components to train graduates who can deal effectively with the variety and complexity of issues involved in applying information technology (IT) successfully within organizations. The curriculum is designed to be flexible, dynamic and provides state-of-the-art exposure to both IT and management practices. In addition to technology and business studies, all students will be required to demonstrate acceptable competence in communication and presentation skills, interpersonal skills, teamwork skills and problem-solving capabilities. The Ph.D in Information Systems (IS) at UNC Greensboro is an innovative, research oriented doctoral program designed to prepare students primarily for careers as members of faculty in academic IS units and secondarily as professionals in non-academic research and professional organizations. It is designed to train professionals and academic research scholars of the highest quality. The program is innovative in that it contains several components of a traditional Ph.D. program, where the focus is on developing technical and empirical research skills, and is characterized by four distinctive elements that enhance the traditional model. These are: a commitment to practical relevance; an emphasis on producing quality teachers; a research apprenticeship requirement; and interdisciplinary research. In addition, a “global information technology” emphasis is available as an option to interested students.
