Ph.D. in Information Systems

WHY a Ph.D?

Glad you asked 🙂 As I exited the Word Trade Center on September 11th, I thought to myself “I haven’t completed my studies. I need more time.” So I promised myself if I made it out alive I’d push as my academic potential to it’s limit.


The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Information Systems at Nova Southeastern University is well suited for professionals working in areas such as information system planning, systems analysis and design, project management, information system administration, and information science. Essentially, it’s a great match for the steps I’ve taken throughout my entire career.


The program requires at least 64 credit hours to complete, of which 32 are for required and elective courses, and at least 32 are for the research and dissertation process. If you’re keeping track, that’s about 2 years of academics, and the rest on writing the dissertation. It looks like I’ll stretch those 2 years a little bit further. But we can talk about that when we sit for coffee.

…life isn’t what you’re given, it’s what you create, what you conquer, and what you aim to achieve.
