It is becoming increasingly critical for IT professionals to also be masters of business. It is no longer enough to be merely proficient in both disciplines; making the most of a career in IT demands having a full grasp on technology and business.

As a result, the desire for IT professionals who understand business has never been greater. To help meet this demand—and keep your career path on track—WPI offers the Master of Science program in Information Technology.

This program is designed for full immersion into information technology, while still providing the comprehensive management principles necessary for understanding the application of IT to business and of business to IT. It provides a solid foundation in information technology, with a wide range of cutting-edge concentrations and management principles.
