The Wayne State University School of Information Sciences has announced a new master of science in information management (MSIM) degree. The program, which will begin in the winter 2018 semester, will prepare students for careers in information management and related fields.
The 30-credit MSIM is offered fully online, allowing students to learn remotely regardless of location. Students have multiple specializations to choose from, including software tools, web-based information systems, data analytics, health and scientific data management, and user experience.
“At a time when data and information in all forms are becoming increasingly important, adding the MSIM allows us to tailor our degree offerings more closely to the competencies that students’ varying career interests demand,” said Stephen Bajjaly, associate dean and professor at the School of Information Sciences.
The Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts good to excellent growth prospects for the various information management subspecialties.
