Indian students will be able to study the Master of Computer Information Systems (MCIS) offered by Colorado State University (CSU) while sitting at home. The university has collaborated with Leap Scholar, an Edtech platform that offers American degrees in a hybrid format. The 18-month program is a combination of online and on-campus courses.
The fall session begins in August 2022 and applications are now open for Indian students. The last date to apply is July 1, 2022. There is no requirement for GRE/GMAT scores as part of the eligibility criteria. Students can also apply for scholarships and loans to further save costs.
“The MCIS program, which is top ranked by US News and World Report 2022, will be delivered to Indian students for one semester in India and the final two semesters at the campus in Colorado, USA,” edtech informed. .
The hybrid format will reduce the total cost of the program by almost 30%, or around USD 24,749 or Rs 19 lakhs in savings depending on currency conversion.
The MCIS program has a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) designation that will allow Indian students to enjoy a three-year post-study work visa, similar to any full-time international student in the United States. With this offering, students would gain hands-on experience closely tied to making critical business decisions, edtech adds.
Leo Vijayasarathy, CSU’s College of Business and Department Chair of Computer Information Systems, said, “Our partnership with LeapScholar reflects the mission of our university and college: to expand student access to our world-class curriculum, while training the next generation of business leaders to leverage information technology for a better world. Our STEM-designated Masters in Computer Information Systems program offers Indian students an affordable degree in a hybrid format that combines the best of online learning and on-campus experience with the opportunity to gain multiple years of work experience in the United States.
