Carnegie-Mellon heavy on distance learning

There 4 big CS schools in the USA, Stanford, Berkeley, MIT, and Carnegie-Mellon. How you define “big school” is left to you, but I’m taking the word of the president of the ACM on this. Carnegie-Mellon University offers the Master in Software Engineering and the Master in IT in distance learning mode. Maybe this says something about how far distance learning has come?

  1. Maybe this says something about how far distance learning has come?

    Or that there’s money in them thar terminal masters degrees? It seems to me that this is just a higher-margin (because there’s no enrollment limit) version of the traditional self-supporting degree program. Same content, different packaging.
