Geospatial Information Systems & Technology


Overview

The goal of the MBS Geospatial Information Systems & Technology (GIS&T) concentration is to equip students with the knowledge, tools, and technological skills necessary to succeed in this emerging, multidisciplinary field. In addition to examining the theoretical basis and the societal and environmental impacts of GIS technology, students will gain fundamental understanding of key business areas including finance and accounting, marketing, communication and leadership, management and planning, intellectual property, ethics, and regulatory.


Skills Gained

Through expert instruction and experiential education, students will:
  • Gain broad, in-depth knowledge of the diverse applications of GIS technology
  • Become skilled in a variety of geospatial technologies
  • Gain fundamental understating about use of GIS&T in science, government, and commerce
  • Learn about guiding principles and best practices related to GIS&T

Preferred Academic or Professional Experience


Academic
  • An undergraduate degree in a science-specific discipline is preferred, and applicants should have as solid background in and deep understanding of calculus and statistics. If necessary, students can take calculus and/or statistics courses while earning their MBS degree.

Professional
  • All professional experience will be considered as part of the application process.
Applicants who are unsure of their eligibility for this concentration should schedule an appointment with an enrollment specialist.
