Today's business leaders must draw from a variety of disciplines in order to become effective decision-makers. The Master of Science with a major in Information Systems & Operations Management (ISOM) is an on-campus, traditional program designed to provide students with computing, quantitative and applications skills vital to a business problem-solving setting. The ISOM program requirements span traditional academic disciplines to produce a multi-disciplinary major. ISOM graduates typically fill such positions as Decision Support Specialist, Information Systems Specialist and Systems Analyst.
Students from a variety of backgrounds, including business administration and engineering, enroll in the M.S. program. Students without a business background may need an additional semester in the program. There is no thesis requirement and no option to write a thesis in place of required course work. Students may choose a track in either information technology or supply chain management.
The M.S. program consists of a minimum of 36 credit hours. Normally, these credit hours are obtained within one and a half to two years. However, in the Warrington College of Business Administration, graduate programs are organized in a modular system. The modular system allows students to focus intensely on course content over an eight-week period with a week break in between.
The student chapter of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) is the official organization of the ISOM Graduate Program at UF. AIS is a nationally recognized organization with local parent chapters throughout the U.S.
