Abstract: This paper presents the design of an MS program in Information Technology (MSIT), whose first entering class arrived in Fall 2001 and graduated in Spring 2003. The purpose of the paper is to share how we crafted an architect-focused program. Specifically, it highlights the need for an Information Systems program whose goal is to prepare systems integrators, discusses the design and content of a curriculum that has an architect focus, and outlines how the MSIS 2000 program model curriculum was molded to meet local needs.

Keywords: graduate curriculum in Information Technology, MS program in Information Technology, graduate curriculum in Information Systems, graduate program in Computer Information Systems, curriculum design
