The Master of Business Administration – Project Management in Information Technology is a professional program emphasizing breadth of preparation in various disciplines required for business, and a depth of knowledge in managing projects in the information technology (IT) domain. The degree may be completed in two years or less and provides the high-level knowledge and range of skills required to meet the challenges of today’s enterprise security needs. Students gain valuable knowledge in IT operations management, emerging technologies, risk management, software lifecycles, agile development and managing all aspects of an IT project or program. Rooted in the case method approach, this intensive MBA program offers a uniquely collaborative, hands-on education.
Students actively engage in case study analysis and exercise leadership and teamwork skills. In addition to the core business fundamentals, the program provides specialized skills in strategic information technology and management. The program combines academic principles and practical, real-world applications to result in a solid business foundation.
The applicant to the master of business administration program must have a bachelor’s degree; however, the degree need not be in business administration. Applicants who are graduates of non-business programs are also encouraged to apply. An applicant is assigned an advisor soon after acceptance into the M.B.A. program, and should meet with the advisor to prepare a program plan outlining the courses needed for the M.B.A. degree.
The admissions decision is based on a review of the application documentation including work experience, academic performance, references and written statement of purpose. Although taking the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is not a requirement, it is highly recommended for admission consideration. Individuals who take the GMAT and obtain a satisfactory score can compensate for other criteria in their application (such as academic performance or work experience). Preference for graduate scholarships will be given to applicants who take the GMAT.
