Penn State University has recently announced they are offering a Master of Professional Studies Program in Enterprise Architecture (MPS/EA) through the College of Information Sciences and Technology. The MPS/EA is designed for professionals aspiring to advance to roles with enterprise wide scope and authority, such as that embodied by an enterprise architect. This online program is designed for the working professional with a minimum of two years of relevant work experience who desires to enhance his or her knowledge, experience, and prospects for positions of greater responsibility.
For the past 18 months I have been part of the Penn State EA Advisory Group helping shape the masters and undergraduate EA curriculums. To my knowledge this is the first enterprise architecture masters program in North America and the first online EA program in the world. Providing classes in a virtual format is the wave of the future and makes this degree accessible to everyone. There is a tremendous amount of interest in this program so move fast if you want to enroll.
The MPS/EA program includes courses in enterprise architecture principles and practices, enterprise modeling, enterprise architecture leadership and governance, layers of the enterprise information technology architecture, enterprise architecture case studies, cost and value management, organizations, business and project strategy, and project and portfolio management.
The MPS/EA was developed and is administered under the Center for Enterprise Architecture within the College of IST. A brochure with the program overview can be found here: PSU EA Professional Masters Program. For more information visit the Enterprise Architecture Center of Excellence!
