What is Information Technology Management (ITM)?

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 the skills to work as a business or technical consultant, systems analyst, database administrator, or web programmer.

Interested in ITM?

Apply to Mathematics and Business Administration, and choose it as your major in your second year.
