Management of Information Technology, M.S.

 

Information is the lifeblood of 21st century business, industry and government.The Hood Graduate School Management of Information Technology master’s degree addresses the growing global demand for managers who can manage IT solutions that facilitate achievement of organizations’ strategic goals.

Interdisciplinary approach with a real-world focus

The MIT program is comprehensive in scope and interdisciplinary in format. Students acquire a thorough foundation in management functions —organizational behavior, human resources, finance, production, operations — as well as in information systems, technical project teams, systems engineering, telecommunications and networks. This blended, applied approach primes master’s degree candidates to direct technology projects, both large and small, in real-world business settings.

Solving information challenges

The MIT prepares students to assess corporate IT needs and evaluate options for systems solutions. They learn how to perform cost/benefits analyses, determine operational impact and lead successful systems deployment. Courses are taught by faculty with a broad range of information specializations — from security to database systems required for “large data” applications to website programming — and by adjunct instructors who have experience with corporations such as CACI International Inc., the National Institute of Standards and Technology and Rand Corporation.

Full time or part time

The 36-credit program accommodates working professionals who want to complete their degrees on a part-time basis, usually in three years, by taking evening classes. It also attracts students who can attend full time and graduate in two years.
