Plan of Study

Upon meeting the admission requirements, to complete the application process students must meet with the program director to develop a plan of study. Advisement prior to first-semester enrollment and a formal plan of study is mandatory. Individual students will be advised to enroll in specific classes that match their intended career path and complement their bachelor's degree and work experience. A plan of study is a custom-designed curriculum created by the applicant and the MS-ISA director. Applicants must schedule to meet with Professor Ranjit Bose to create it. Email him at
