Program Description:

UAB’s IEM (Information Engineering and Management) degree was designed by industry leaders in 2000 to meet the needs of current working professionals looking for leadership and growth opportunities. IEM provides students the opportunity to enhance both technical and management skills required in today’s professional world. At IEM, we help you gain a broader perspective while reflecting the needs of today’s marketplace: demanding, flexible and integrated. We are focused on the needs of the technology professional. We are not working to map all graduates into the same model, and we are not your typical graduate degree. The way we see it, our job is to train you and give you what you need to reach success professionally. We operate as if you have hired a consulting firm for your professional needs - helping you to strategically get where you want. Clients of IEM receive a real-world view, a focus on networking, and a solid group of successfully established instructors who are passionate about seeing their clients grow in their profession. IEM instructors and administrators make it a priority to work with clients so that this degree can fit into the schedules, lives, and location of the clients themselves. From learning how to network, to interviewing, to understanding what resumes do--and what they do not do---we teach you everything you need to know. Real industry skills, taught by current industry leaders will give you the tools you actually need, and will use, to achieve the success YOU want. Consider IEM the boot camp for real success.


All of UAB's graduate programs are accredited by SACS, the US Dept. of Education's sanctioned accrediting body for the southeast region.
