  • Course description
    The Master of Science in the Management of Information Technology (MIT) is an inter-discipline graduate degree designed to meet the growing demand for managers with both business and information technology skills. The purpose of the MIT program is to prepare women and men who will be responsible for managing information technology projects and teams in organizations.

    This preparation will be accomplished through a comprehensive set of studies which provide students with knowledge and skills related to 1) the business issues associated with the management of complex, large technology projects and the people who work within those projects; and, 2) the discipline of information technology and the issues which must be confronted in order to consider, design, develop, manage, implement, and deploy successful information technology solutions within organizations.

    The Master of Science in the Management of Information Technology is a 36-credit program. A full-time graduate student should be able to complete the requirements for the degree in two years. The program is designed to accommodate the needs of professionals attending on a part-time basis who wish to complete their degree by taking classes in the evening. This program is intended for:
    • persons holding a bachelor's degree in computer science or a related field,
    • persons holding a bachelor's degree in business, and/or
    • persons holding a bachelor's degree in any field and already employed in an information technology area who are seeking additional academic background as part of a career and professional growth program.

    Persons without this background can successfully enter and complete the program but may have to complete a series of foundation courses in order to attain the appropriate background for study. Depending on the student's background, the foundation courses vary from 0 to 15 credits.
    Requirements for the degree Entrance
    Although the MIT degree program is open to individuals holding a bachelor's degree in any discipline, it may be necessary to complete a series of foundation courses in order to attain the appropriate background for study. In addition to the admission requirements established by the Graduate School, it is also desired that applicants have at least a cumulative grade point average of 2.75 at the completion of their undergraduate work. In addition, submitted letters of reference, a resume, and an interview with the director of the Management of Information Technology degree program are encouraged and will contribute to the acceptance decision.
    Prerequisite Foundation Courses
    Students in the program must complete or exempt five foundation courses designed to provide the appropriate prerequisite background for the cross-disciplined major. Students with undergraduate coursework in computer science or business administration may apply for exemptions from the appropriate foundation courses.
    • MGMT 551, Management Theory
    • MGMT 552, Quantitative Methods for Managers
    • ECON 551, Foundations of Economics
    • IT 510 Hardware and Software Systems
    • IT 512 Elements of Computer Programming
    Program Requirements
    In order to achieve the mission of the Management of Information Technology program, students are expected to gain a significant breadth and depth of knowledge in both the management and information technology disciplines.

    Courses in the economics, management, and information technology disciplines and several inter-disciplinary courses provide the necessary breadth and depth to the curriculum. Due to the challenge of addressing the breadth of issues in a cross-discipline degree program sufficiently, only required courses have been designed into this program.
