he Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that employment for computer and information systems managers will grow 17 percent from 2008 through 2018, with new applications of technology driving a need for more workers and, therefore, more managers1. The MSITM curriculum bridges the gap between information technology and business leadership by focusing on professional skills such as team building, change management, and interpersonal communication in combination with coursework on enhancing business functions through IT applications and emerging technologies.
Students can choose from two concentrations to help them hone in on their professional interests and goals. The Health Information Management concentration trains students to successfully identify and implement innovative IT solutions specific to the field, while the Leadership concentration is for IT professionals in any industry who want to learn about how IT fits into the larger corporate strategy context. Graduates of the program are trained to go on to successful roles as Team Managers, Network Managers, Security Analysts, and Solutions Architects.
The program is open to students with an undergraduate degree in IT or who have two to three years of experience in an IT position.
