The classes are small, personal and hands-on, you’re able to build connections with your classmates and professors. If you have questions you can actually talk to the professors.

The MS degree exposed me to areas of the field I normally do not have the chance to gain hands on experience, but work side by side with those teams. The exposure to the other fields of IT personally helps me understand how to solution a problem from end to end.
