Master of Information Technology and Management

At the conclusion of their studies, graduates of this degree should be able to:

  • Deliver optimal technical and policy technology solutions for the problems of business, industry, government, non-profit organizations, and individuals in each student’s particular area of focus.
  • Work with, lead, and manage teams in an enterprise environment to collaboratively arrive at optimal technology solutions.
  • Manage and deploy information resources applicable to each student’s particular area of focus in an enterprise setting.

All students are required to complete a minimum of three core courses which are included as a part of each program specialization. These core courses will ensure an ability to develop software applications at a competent level using a contemporary programming language, the capability to employ and deploy appropriate system technologies, and a grasp of business development knowledge appropriate to the discipline. Students electing not to complete a specialization must complete at least one course from each of the seven core subject topic areas. Advisers will assist students in the selection of core courses most relevant to their interests and career goals.

The specializations are meant to guide students in their course selection, allowing them to focus on a particular area of information technology, depending on their interests, background, and career goals. Alternative courses in each specialization may be available at the discretion of the student’s adviser.
