Master of Information Technology Strategy - Carnegie Mellon University

Welcome to the MITS program

The Master of Information Technology Strategy (MITS) is a cooperative endeavor of the College of Engineering (CIT), School of Computer Science (SCS) and Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences (H&SS).

The MITS program provides a multidisciplinary education that prepares students to define and conceptualize:

  • the emerging environment of threats caused by cyber operations;
  • opportunities for enhanced information analysis and exploitation;
  • development and management of innovative information technology systems; and
  • decision-making challenges associated with the above.


The program has four areas of concentration: Data Analytics, Decision Science & Policy, Information Security, Software and Networked Systems.
