MS in Information - Executive Track Services

The MS in Information Management for Executives program requires significant and related professional experience as a pre-requisite. As a result, for this program, the internship is neither required nor available. The iSchool has very strong Career Services and – for the traditional Information Management program - the internship is often the precursor to employment.

The employers and recruiters who visit college campuses are seeking entry level professionals and not executives. The iSchool’s Career Services team offers a different set of services to the executive student, such as high level interview and resume advising.
