The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) in Enterprise Technology Leadership (ETL) is an interdisciplinary CAS designed by the School of Information Studies (iSchool), the College of Engineering & Computer Science, and the Martin J. Whitman School of Management.  The curriculum is designed to fit the needs of working professionals in a variety of fields who are working toward or aspire to be in technology leadership roles.  The CAS is also designed to assist companies in cultivating technology leadership within their organization.  Our employer relations team can help design a cohort program within your company. 

After a nine-credit primary core which exposes students to the three schools with three required courses, students choose two additional electives, or six credits, from one of the listed disciplinary areas that most aligns with their professional and academic interests.

Elective courses listed in the areas represent key fundamentals selected from existing master's degree programs at the schools. All credits earned are transferrable into a full-degree Master's program in each of the schools. This certificate is campus based with the ability to complete some coursework online.  The CAS in ETL can be completed as a full-time or part-time student. All candidates should have a bachelor's degree or equivalent.

What you will learn

Earn credits toward a Master's degree

While the CAS in Enterprise Technology Leadership is primarily a standalone program, credits earned in the CAS can be used toward a master’s degree in certain target degrees.  You can incorporate CAS classes into select Syracuse University master’s curriculums, which means you can graduate with a certified and highly marketable skill set without taking extra classes.
