Two Scholarships Open For Virginia Residents At U.Va.’S Mcintire School Of Commerce Master’s Degree In Management Of Information Systems

March 9, 2000 -- The McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia is offering a tuition waiver for two Virginia residents for its 12-month master’s degree program, Management Information Systems (M.S./M.I.S.). They are valued at $25,000 each.

Those interested will have to act quickly, however. The application deadline for the next class, which begins in May, is Wednesday, March 15.

The executive-format program enables working professionals from a broad array of industries to obtain a graduate degree through a combination of on-site classes and course work completed at home via computer. The curriculum integrates business skills in strategy, finance, marketing and project management with technology skills in information technology (IT) architecture, e-business, and enterprise systems -- giving professionals the skills needed to analyze business problems and identify IT-based opportunities.

Computerworld magazine recently recognized McIntire's M.S./M.I.S. program as one of the top 25 techno-MBA business programs in the country.

The Virginia Information Technology Scholars Program rewards Virginia residents who show promise in the information technology field through their academic or work experiences. In addition to their regular academic workload, VIT Scholars will conduct M.I.S.-related research and/or a training project for the duration of their program. Scholars receive a full remission of in-state tuition and fees and the opportunity to earn an additional stipend.
