MISST program hosts information meetings around Ohio December 11-13 for classes
beginning in February, 2008

The Muskingum College Office of Graduate and Continuing Studies will host a series of informational meetings across Ohio beginning December 11 for its Master of Information Strategy, Systems and Technology (MISST) program. Registration is open for the spring cohort of the MISST program, which begins in February.

The informational sessions will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the following locations:
Tuesday, December 11, at the DoubleTree Hotel, 6200 Quarry Lane in Independence, Ohio
Wednesday, December 12, The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art & Technology, 55 South First Street in Newark, Ohio.
Thursday, December 13, at the Concourse Hotel, 4300 International Gateway (airport), in Columbus, Ohio
No pre-registration is required to attend the sessions.

MISST is a two-year program, blending “any time, any place” on-line education with periodic face-to-face residencies. Participants are able to maintain their full-time employment, and to incorporate their newly acquired knowledge and skills directly into their daily work.

This master’s degree prepares business and information technology professionals to successfully integrate strategy and technology. The program focuses on the effective and innovative use of technology to strategically advance an organization.

Students participate in an experiential learning curriculum consisting of nine projects, of which two are designed to serve the strategic goals of the participants’ own organizations.

Working in teams, students are presented with authentic business challenges and interact with team members to identify and analyze problems, develop appropriate business strategies and align technology to support their strategies. MISST provides hands-on learning, preparing students to immediately apply their learning to their work.
