The Information Technology Management (ITM) program is designed to develop professionals with emerging and converging information and communication technologies. A degree in ITM produces graduates who can organize business processes to support the strategic corporate needs, demands, and goals at the management level. The program is designed to bridge the gap between problems of business and the capabilities of information technology while aligning the technology with business strategies. Students enhance their critical thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills with knowledge of management principles. The program is a balance of technology, management, communications and the liberal arts.
Students are prepared for positions in technology and management fields, such as local and national government, telecommunications, financial institutions, corporate or educational IT units, private business and NGO’s. Graduates will have the necessary knowledge, experience and skills to enter technology-related careers in business and management. Job opportunities include, but are not limited to: business, management and systems analyst; IT and project management; IT director; information management specialist; database or web administrator; network administrator; software or computer applications specialist; IT security officer; and data scientist.
The program is currently under development. It is projected that students will take 45 units in their major, with 15 units of electives, allowing for a completion of a chosen minor, concentration or a free selection of courses. In addition to General Education requirements of the university, students in ITM will require co-requisite courses in math (algebra, calculus, and/or statistics), and lab courses in science. Completion of the program will also require demonstration of technical writing ability, a senior project, and an internship.
