A thesis option is available. Students interested in this option should contact both the faculty member who the student wants to serve as the thesis advisor, and the Director of Graduate Programs in the College of Business, before completing 12 hours of graduate study.

Up to 12 semester hours of graduate credit taken at other universities may be transferred to meet MS-CBS degree requirement. Inquiries about the transferability of specific courses should be directed to the College of Business Director of Graduate Programs, who will consult with the IS faculty to determine whether the content of the class will be accepted for transfer credit.
