College of Information Systems
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Management
The mission of the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Management (BSITM) program is to prepare students for a career in a broad range of information-based fields including careers within government, business, and not-for-profit organizations.
Specifically, the program aims to provide students with a basic understanding of both technical issues in IT management (databases, networks, security, etc.) and managerial applications (financial and marketing information systems, systems design, etc.), along with a solid foundation in the function of information systems in management and the social and ethical dimensions of IT practice. Emphasis is placed on the integration of the social and technical components of IT systems and the need to jointly manage both aspects of information management.
Graduates should be well equipped to support senior IT personnel working across different managerial areas, by virtue of their exposure to an extremely wide range of IT concerns and problems during their training and the emphasis during that training on “speaking the language” of different areas of management and technologies and being able to mediate and translate between these different points of view.
Graduates of the BSITM program should be able to function successfully in information technology management based career path; meet the needs of constant change in information technology management by engaging in pursuit of excellence and lifelong learning; research specific topics in the core areas of information technology management; make effective information technology management decisions using appropriate analytical and critical thinking processes; contribute to information system projects, and communicate effectively with other professionals technical and non-technical areas; and pursue advanced degrees in information technology management or related disciplines.
