The MS in Communications & Information Management degree was designed for any college graduate who wants to invent, discover, and produce value in your organization.

Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering, Google, notes, “Because of the explosive power of exponential growth, the twenty-first century will be the equivalent to 20,000 years of progress at today’s rate of progress; organizations have to be able to redefine themselves at a faster and faster pace” and managers and leaders have to be ready for this age of acceleration.
