M.S. - IT Project Management
The MS in IT Project Management is intended for graduate students who wish to prepare for careers leading and managing IT project teams. The lack of project and program management skills has long been known to be a major factor in IT project failures.
Over the past decade, it has become apparent that placing individuals with strong training in the breadth of project management skills significantly improves the likelihood of bringing an IT project in successfully on time, and on budget.
This growing awareness is leading to increased demand for skilled IT project and program managers. But demand for these skills currently outstrips the supply of qualified candidates.
This is a high-level program preparing graduates for mid to high level project and program management positions. Core IT skills are assumed. Students focus on leveraging those skills to build leadership practices that enable quality work.
