Executive Master's in Information Technology

Take your IT career to the next level with the Executive Master of Science in Information Technology (EMIT) Degree from the University of the Cumberlands.

We live in a connected world – one where cars “signal” us when a tire needs air, kitchen appliances “talk” to each other, and malicious agents work to take advantage of our connectivity. Learn what it takes to manage these elements, maintain connectivity, and fight the good digital fight.

The hybrid information technology master’s degree program combines practical training with leadership “soft skills” to help you make the most of your career path. From predictive analytics to identify cyber threats to using big data analytics for large industries, such as healthcare, this program will open the door to leadership opportunities in virtually any industry.

The hybrid format executive master’s in information technology is a variation of our fully online program that includes a mandatory three-day weekend residency session each semester. It’s ideal for working professionals who want a program that works with their busy schedule but isn't completely online. The executive IT master’s program would also work for an international student with an F1 visa and a CPT/OPT component to their degree.

You will take at least 31 credit-hours of theories, strategies, and tactics in leadership, information security, data mining, business intelligence, and decision-making processes. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared to:

  • Organize, manipulate, analyze, and visualize data with modern programs and tech
