Program Description:

Enterprise Architecture (EA), once considered simply a means of linking IT strategy and execution in an organization, has evolved to become a mechanism for aligning the entire enterprise—the business strategy and goals—with information systems and technology. And EA has grown increasingly important to all types of organizations as they strive to become more efficient, effective, and agile. 

To meet the increased demand for EA–related professionals, Penn State has developed the online Master of Professional Studies in Enterprise Architecture (MPS in EA). This program was created with significant input from leading corporations, industry associations, and the government bodies through our Center for Enterprise Architecture. It is designed for people who aspire to roles with enterprise-wide scope and authority, such as that embodied by an enterprise architect.

This 33-credit master’s degree program was designed to prepare you to address high-level organizational competencies required to integrate strategic-, business-, and technology planning methods as well as the ability to understand, analyze, justify, and communicate the solution of enterprise architecture problems.

Graduate Certificates:

Penn State’s 9-credit online Graduate Certificate in EA was designed to give you a solid foundation of knowledge as you explore how to integrate strategic, business, and technology planning methods and best practices. The certificate was created for professionals already working in enterprise architecture who want to formalize their current skills, or for individuals who are newly interested in the profession.

With the 9-credit online Graduate Certificate in Enterprise Information and Security Technology Architecture, you can acquire the most innovative knowledge available today regarding facets of enterprise information related to challenging issues in technology and security.

Maximum flexibility is maintained by the program in an effort to meet both the professional needs of individual students and academic quality standards.


Penn State is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
