The MSI is a professional degree which prepares students for emerging careers that meet the rapidly growing information-management needs of an increasingly interconnected world. As businesses and society grapple with the challenges and opportunities of the digital age, information professionals play a crucial role in analyzing, systematizing, and evaluating the massive resources generated by the digital revolution. At Michigan, we train students to be leaders and agents of change in a field that is evolving at unprecedented speed.
Should you consider an MSI?
The MSI program attracts students from over 100 different undergraduate majors: from computer science and engineering to psychology, history, and communications. We seek students with leadership potential who have a team-oriented approach to problem-solving, who are capable of dealing with ambiguity and change, and who have a strong commitment to service. Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and from many stages of life - we routinely work with non-traditional students, those returning from military service, those applying from overseas and more.
Choose one of our options, or tailor a program just for you
Students in the UMSI Master of Science in Information program may choose one of many specializations, or tailor a degree program precisely suited to their needs. You can opt for a double degree if you like, building on what you learn at UMSI with an additional degree from another U-M school.
