Business systems development is frequently riddled with frustration due to breakdowns in communication; stories of software that fails to meet business needs are commonplace. These pressures have fueled a growing interest in developing software by modeling business problems — essentially, charting out how a process works, what the needs are for the software at any specific place in the process, and then using a plain language approach to build the software solutions needed. Creating these business models has become a critical part of the software plans of Microsoft, IBM, and many others.
Neumont's MSCS program is all about teaching students what they need to know to build modern business information models in real-world environments. Our MSCS program focuses on bleeding-edge Object Role Modeling concepts and techniques universally accepted as the future direction of software development. Naturally, this is considered a highly marketable skill.
