Information Technology Management, MS

Master of Science


The field of information technology (IT) management focuses on the integration of business strategies and information technology to create value for an organization. IT management includes many functions, including staffing, organizing, budgeting, and control, along with functions unique to IT, such as software development, change management, network planning, and IT support.

The MS in Information Technology Management is designed to meet the growing demand for IT leaders. Whether you come from an IT background or a business background, the curriculum will prepare you to meet current market needs for CIOs and other tech visionaries. If you hold an undergraduate degree in business, computer science, informatics, information technology, or engineering, the MS in Information Technology Management can help you refine your focus as a specialist. If you have an MBA, this degree will help you develop greater in-depth analytical expertise.


When you complete the program, you will be knowledgeable about business processes and the integration between business functions and technology. You will be prepared to:

  • Analyze, design, and develop IT systems.
  • Lead IT management and strategy—both of people and systems.
