Careers & Recruiting
The Kelley School’s MSIS program gives you several competitive advantages as you pursue your career:
- A degree from a top-20 business school.
- Real-world learning experiences that fine-tune your IT and project management skills, make you stand out, and prepare you for the business world.
- Graduate Career Services (GCS) that put you in touch with top recruiters in the United States.
Your MSIS coursework allows you to choose several different career paths. Historically, our students have pursued careers in four key areas:
- General IT consulting positions with firms such as Accenture, Booz Allen Hamilton, Deloitte, PwC Advisory, Hitachi, KPMG, and Whirlpool.
- Niche IT consulting positions in areas such as strategy, forensic technology, and security with firms such as PwC Advisory, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, and Navigant
- IT Governance and Controls careers with the public accounting firms such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, KPMG, Deloitte & Touche, and Crowe Horwath
- Corporate IT leadership development programs with firms such as Citigroup, Exxon-Mobil, Abbott, and Whirlpool
With an MSIS degree, you’ll get a higher entry-level position and starting salary than with an undergraduate degree alone. Approximately 95 percent of the graduates from our class of 2011 received job offers with a median salary of $66,000, and most received substantial signing bonuses.
Students in the program have access to meet recruiters from more than 500 companies that have relationships with Kelley. See our employment statistics for up-to-date placement rates, compensation, and offers by geographic location.
