Enterprise Architecture

The Enterprise Architecture concentration focuses on the business goals, processes, and technology infrastructure needed by an organization and the alignment of the processes and infrastructure with the goals of the business.

The required courses for this concentration are generally delivered in an online format, so when choosing this concentration it is possible to complete the degree online with a judicious choice of electives.  Many of the courses are also delivered in an in-classroom format, so it is also possible to complete the degree on campus.

This concentration is complemented by an 18-credit Enterprise Architecture Graduate Certificate.  For many working professionals, the Certificate is a natural intermediate step toward this concentration.
