    Hi All, I am determined to apply for a MSIS (masters in Information Systems) program this fall through distance learning. I am a working mum so it is impossible for me to go to school. Therefore I will prefer an online option. My work will be paying for my degree partly/fully depending on my grades.

    I am currently working as a Data Analyst and work on SAS, SQL, Excel, Access in the Healthcare sector in NJ. I have over 8+ experience. My objective is to complete my Masters program and get that IT degree on my resume. The undergrad was in Business Administration. I have done lot of IT courses over the years however I still get questioned about my IT skills. Also my passion is in Data Analytics hopefully through this degree I hope to land a good job. So networking or campus recruitment if possible will be of great help.

    I have goggled a lot and these are the programs I so far like,

    Mississippi State University’s, National University, MSIS, 30 hr $11,190.00
    Dakota State University, Regional Uni, MSIS, 30 hr,$12000
    Colorado State University Fort Collins, MSIS, 30 hr, $23,550.00
    NJIT, MSIS, 30 hrs, $33000
    UMBC, MSIS, $26000
    Auburn University, MSIS, $24000

    I know Dakota state or UIS Springfield seems popular on this board. However I am unsure whether they will help me achieve my objective of doing my Masters from a good reputable school.

    Please can anyone suggest? I couldn't find any good school in NJ/NY area except NJIT or Syracruse (too expensive).

    Thank you!!

    Since you have expressed an interest in data analytics, my recommendation would be Dakota State. They have several data analytics courses available. They even have a business analytics certificate that I will pursue after finishing my masters.
