Admission to the program is for the fall term only, and limited to 35 students. Selection is made through the careful evaluation of the academic background and work experience of each applicant. Enrollment in the MIS program alone will not satisfy the credit requirements for foreign students on a student visa:individual arrangements can be made for additional credit hours to meet full-time status.
Students must attend and pass all the required courses and project work spread over five consecutive semesters including one summer term. Graduation requires continuous effort for lecture attendance and project engagement for the maximum period of two years. Lectures will be offered two days a week during the first four terms. The project in the fifth term may be scheduled more flexibly.
Students with strong preparation in computer science may be offered, on a case by case basis, the option of completing an extended project or a masters thesis.
