Examples of such areas include (but are not limited to) CIS, IS, MIS, Networking. Students whose undergraduate degree is in an unrelated area will be required to produce evidence of at least two years of responsible work experience as a computer programmer, systems analyst, business analyst, or similar position where the workload is primarily centered on Information Technology and the student had significant exposure to the system development process.
