The MSIS program provided a schedule that was conducive to my work hours, and the courses covered material that would allow flexibility of a career change, if I wanted. I also liked the program because my professors were tough enough to push me to my limit, but reasonable enough to realize that most of the students are full-time working adults. The reason I chose this program was because I wanted to maximize my current capabilities as a System Admin / System Developer. Technology is forever changing and by working in the IT areas, I feel that it is important to keep up with the faster, easier, better way of doing things. Legacy systems are nice and will be around for decades to come, but if there is a faster, easier, better way of doing things, this will allow for better time management of your work day to be productive in other areas.
