The M.S. in Management information Systems is offered only in a cohort (blended delivery) model to international students in a joint partnership with the Shenyang Jianzhu University in Shenyang, China.

The program is designed for professionals who understand the strategic value of information resources and the importance of managing these resources throughout an organization.

Lisle Campus

Benedictine’s Master of Science in Management Information Systems program allowed me to gain real-world skills in an environment that welcomed participation and my previous knowledge. I wanted to add information management skills to my nursing portfolio to be ready for the technology challenges of an evolving health care system. Benedictine helped by offering flexible learning that included weekend classes, electives that were applicable to my work and required classes that broadened my perspective.
