FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PACE UNIVERSITY’S SEIDENBERG SCHOOL OF COMPUTER SCIENCE AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN NEW YORK OFFERS INNOVATIVE GRADUATE STUDY IN COMPUTER SCIENCE AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS FOR STUDENTS WITH THREE-YEAR BACHELOR’S DEGREE FROM INDIA
New York, Apr. 16, 2013 – Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems announced today that students holding three-year Bachelor’s degrees from Indian universities will be considered for direct admission to the Seidenberg School with immediate effect. Such degrees include Bachelor of Science (B. Sc), Bachelor of Commerce (B. Com), Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) from universities in India.
Previously, students holding a 3-year Bachelor’s degree were required to take up to a year of additional undergraduate course work at the university before beginning their masters degree programs.
”Strong students who have completed a three year bachelor’s degree may now apply to be accepted directly into our masters degree programs and may begin working on their degrees straight away,” said Dr. Amar Gupta, dean of the Seidenberg School. “This represents a significant savings of time and money and will allow students to begin their course of study and internships without any holding period.”
Students interested in this program should apply online at http://www.pace.edu/prospectivestudents/graduate/graduate-application-process
Students must submit a GMAT or GRE exam score at the time of application.
Gupta was appointed Dean of the Seidenberg School by Pace President Stephen J. Friedman in August 2012 after a prominent career that included appointments at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Arizona. Gupta is currently teaching Pace’s first MOOC course, “International Technology Services in the Knowledge Economy,” developed to address current trends in business, technology and education.
Gupta introduced the concept of the “24-Hour Knowledge Factory,” a model explored in this MOOC in detail, in an article last year in the Wall Street Journal entitled “Expanding the 24-Hour Workplace: Round-the-clock operations aren’t just for call centers anymore.”
In the new 24-hour workplace a professional in the United States who works the usual 8 hour work day can transfer a project to a colleague in a different time zone, perhaps in China or Australia, who will then work 8 hours and in turn transfer the project to a colleague in Eastern Europe. The project is then transferred back to the original professional in the US.
The course covers the technological, economic, legal, and political considerations necessary to foster this type of collaboration. Courses of this type will be of special appeal to students coming from foreign countries who would like to make immediate use of the skills that they acquire at Seidenberg School.
