Information Technology Management

Become fluent in geek speak and business banter

Businesses can’t operate without information technology, but few business leaders understand the nuts and bolts of their IT systems. In this program, you’ll bridge the gap between the CEO and the computer specialists.

You'll learn about systems analysis, databases, e-business, networks, and management information systems, along with marketing, project management, and business statistics.

Graduate with a Bachelor of Mathematics degree and get the skills to work as a business or technical consultant, systems analyst, database administrator, or web programmer. If you take co-op, you'll have experience to complement that as well.
