"As I got to know my classmates and meet my professor during our synchronous classes, there was really a sense of connection. I really do feel like I have a strong sense of community within the classroom, even though it is virtual."

- Menelik Lewis, (MIIPS Online Student)

"There are few institutions that can provide depth in design, business, and engineering at the graduate level like CMU. For me, the MIIPS program offered a unique combination of educational excellence in all three fields with a passionate, exceptional student base at a university that has a deep history of fostering cross-disciplinary collaboration."

- Catherine Sun (MIIPS '05)

"I looked at MBA programs, however, I felt that they were not focused on software engineering as a discipline. The MSSM program closed the gap for me. It is an MBA for software engineers. Using software engineering skills, I am able to make users' lives better by building useful products for them."

- Shabbir Suterwala (MSSM '11)
