Everspring to help grow Marquette’s No. 6-ranked M.S. in Computing Program, which offers outstanding flexibility for working professionals and career changers
Marquette and Everspring have announced an expansion of their partnership to include Marquette’s top ranked innovative Master of Science in Computing program.
Everspring, a leading provider of higher education technology solutions and services, will support the program with marketing, admissions and student services to help boost enrollments and drive student success and retention.
“Marquette welcomes the opportunity to expand our successful partnership with Everspring,” said Dr. Douglas Woods, vice provost for graduate and professional studies. “We are excited to extend the reach of our M.S. in Computing Program that has become especially popular with non-technical professionals who are looking to make a change in career. We know that Everspring is the right partner to help us continue to grow this program in line with our mission to expand educational opportunities.”
The program is ranked No. 6 nationally by U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 Best Online Master’s in Information Technology Programs. The program provides comprehensive studies in computing disciplines and flexible learning options for students wishing to advance their computing skills or change careers. With the Career Change (COSMIC) option, career changers with non-technical backgrounds can obtain the M.S. in Computing to pursue a career in a high-demand technology field.
Encompassing the disciplines of computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, information systems, and information technology, the M.S. in Computing allows students to craft their own course of study based on their interests and career goals, or to choose a specialization. Students may specialize in information assurance and cyber defense, big data and data analytics, or they may choose the COSMIC path. The program provides flexibility through evening classes, online courses and the option to pursue the degree on a full-time or part-time basis.
“This expansion with Marquette is a wonderful opportunity for Everspring to work with a truly unique program that is already recognized for its excellence,” said Beth Hollenberg, president and co-founder of Everspring. “The Marquette M.S. in Computing prepares students for in-demand technology careers, and the COSMIC pathway is a game-changer for students who don’t have an undergraduate degree in computer science but want to pivot into a technology field.”
