As part of the most innovative college in the country for five years running, the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University has to keep moving forward. W. P. Carey’s latest step toward continual innovation is its Professional Credential in Tech Consulting to help students upskill while continuing to work and gain a professional certificate right away.

Students can complete the new Professional Credential in Tech Consulting 100% online over the fall 2020 semester. It uniquely provides master’s degree level instruction from W. P. Carey faculty and nine credit hours toward an online Master of Science in Information Systems Management (MS-ISM) program, which students can begin as early as fall 2021.

“ASU has been a leader in online education, and the W. P. Carey School of Business launched its first online degree program two decades ago,” said Dan Mazzola, director of the MS-ISM program and clinical associate professor. “One of the very first ‘stackable’ credentials available for an information management degree provides our program and our students — as well as the companies who hire and employ them — a distinct competitive advantage.”

ASU Online and ASU Continuing and Professional Education will deliver the program, with coursework based on a current specialization in W. P. Carey’s on-campus MS-ISM program. Future credentials may include cloud and data analytics.

Students will be able to lead in a range of industries, including financial services, health care, marketing and technology upon completion of the Professional Credential in Tech Consulting.

The 17-week program begins Jan. 8, 2021.
