Baker College in Flint is offering a new five-year-bachelor-to-MSIS degree program that will allow students the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree program in either computer information systems or information technology and security, and the Master of Science in Information Systems program in five years of full-time study.

“In addition to saving time and money, graduates of the Baker College 5-year-bachelor-to-MSIS program will have gained an in-depth knowledge of information systems,” said Scott P. Overmyer, Baker College Center for Graduate Studies MSIS program director. “This gives them an edge with potential employers over other candidates.”

Undergraduate classes may be taken on campus, online or a combination of both, while the graduate classes are offered online. Therefore, students throughout the Baker College system have access to the new program.

Students can indicate their preference for the program as early as their freshmen year. During their senior year, undergraduates will begin to take graduate-level courses. Entry into the program is based on a number of factors that indicate the students’ aptitude for high-level academic achievement. They include: grade point average in a chosen major and other quantitative subjects, writing ability, and internship and work experience. If a student has less than three years of field experience, an internship portfolio must be submitted with an employer evaluation.
