An I.S.E.M. student may specialize in the following areas: artificial intelligence, business intelligence, digital government, digital health, digital transformation, entrepreneurship, information security, smart cities, software engineering, systems development, and technology management as part of their individualized concentration.

HU graduate studies in I.S.E.M. cut across the following three active areas of work:

  • Information Systems: latest technologies and approaches (e.g. artificial intelligence, blockchains, business intelligence, cloud computing, databases, mobile computing and wireless communications, and emerging technologies);
  • Systems Engineering: systems thinking and emphasis on integrated systems instead of individual components; enterprise architectures consisting of people, processes, and technologies; and,
  • Management: business strategies, entrepreneurship, planning integration, security, governance, global enterprises, and agile enterprises.

Program Concentrations


The Master of Science in Information Systems Engineering and Management student can choose electives totaling up to 12 credits from any graduate-level program. This option allows the Information Systems Engineering and Management student to build their own customized specialization and concentration.

What Separates The I.S.E.M. MS Program From Its Peers?

The focus is on how the current and next generation of Digital Enterprises will be planned, engineered, and managed. This implies:

  • Digital Enterprises include Smart Cities, Smart Communities, Industry 4.0, Digital Health, Energy, Agriculture, and virtually all variations of Next Generation Enterprises (NGEs) in the public and private sectors.
  • We are not focused on one aspect (e.g., Management) of NGEs –We cover the entire Plan-Engineer-Manage cycle of Systems Engineering.
  • We are not focused on one technology (e.g., AI) of NGEs either, but instead cover how Analytics, AI, Semantic Web, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, DevOps, ERPs, and Mobile Apps are integrated into building NGEs.

Why Choose I.S.E.M.?

  1. I.S.E.M. is a flexible blend of business and technology — it cuts across Information Systems, Systems Engineering, and Management.
  2. I.S.E.M. offers flexible specializations in Digital Transformation, Technology Management, AI and BI for Business, Blockchains, Smart Cities and Communities, Industry 4.0, and many more.
  3. You can build your own specialization by taking any three courses in a topic area and then completing a related capstone project.
  4. You can start with MS in I.S.E.M. and finish with a Ph.D. in I.S.E.M.
  5. It’s suited for career enhancement and career changers (e.g., from Business to Technology & vice versa).
