The MSIT eBusiness program was established at Carnegie Mellon’s West Coast Campus in 2002. A full time class was established at the Pittsburgh campus in 2004.
There are tasks or projects that equate to courses. Instead of separate courses, the entire program consists of an integrated series of projects designed to help students acquire and practice the essential skills and knowledge that they will use in real world situations. There is very little lecturing for each course (task) and students are divided in to teams to accomplish each course (task). Each project is set up to simulate working on a project for a fictional company.
One should think of the degree program as work or a job that you have been hired to do. Like any job, it’s best to establish regular hours in order for the team to be productive.
All Carnegie Mellon students, graduate and undergraduate alike, are required to have health insurance coverage while registered. Health insurance can be purchased through the university and is updated annually. All students are required to show proof of health coverage upon arrival on campus. www.cmu.edu/health-services/
The university strives to obtain the best health insurance coverage at the most reasonable prices. All full-time students enrolled in a degree program are automatically enrolled in the basic plan and charged the basic mandatory health plan costs. Coverage begins annually on August 1st and expires annually on July 31st. By no later than September 19th of each year, students can choose to 1) upgrade to an enhanced health plan or 2) apply for a waiver from the plan because of existing coverage. Charges will be removed only if the waiver is approved. Additional information on health services and/or coverage can be found at www.cmu.edu/HealthServices.
Housing is available near the University. Carnegie Mellon's Housing Office website (www.cmu.edu/housing/graduate-students/) lists the various housing options available to students. In addition, the Community Housing Coordinator maintains housing lists that include rental properties as well as shared accommodations. Should you visit the campus, you can include a stop at the Housing office for the most recent listings available.
International student orientation is held during the second week of August, two weeks prior to the start of the regular sessions. All new students are required to attend.
The MSIT eBusiness Technology program orientation begins the third week of August (the week following international orientation), and is mandatory for all program students. Students should plan on being on campus and settled into housing accommodations the week prior to orientation.
Classes begin the fourth week of August on the Monday following orientation.
We will register you for all of the required eBusiness courses. You will need to enroll yourself in 08-671 and 08-672 and any electives (with approval) using the university's Online Registration System (SIO).
Information from the Office of International Education (OIE www.cmu.edu/oie/), including the forms necessary to secure the I-20, will be sent to you. Complete the forms and return them as directed. Your essential paperwork can then be processed in a timely manner to ensure your arrival on campus in time for the international student orientation.
This program is offered on Carnegie Mellon’s main campus in Pittsburgh, PA.
