Our graduate programs (MSIS, MBA, EMBA, MS Finance, and MS Entrepreneurship) are geared to working professionals who attend classes on evenings and/or weekends, while working nearby during the week for dynamic firms ranging from Fortune-500 size (such as Apple, Cisco, eBay, Google, Hewlett-Packard, and Intel) to early-stage startup.

The OMIS Department teaches core and elective courses in our undergraduate business program, evening and weekend MBA programs, and Executive MBA program. Our faculty publish in outlets such as MISQ, ISR, Management Science, OR, MSOM, POM, ACM and IEEE Transactions, and currently hold or have held senior editorial positions at these leading journals.

The program offers capstone projects where students, mentored by faculty, work with Silicon Valley firms to solve real information system problems.

Our faculty enjoy many opportunities for interdisciplinary work. The Information Systems side of the OMIS department conducts research in business intelligence, web analytics, security and other areas of great relevance in the information economy.
