Why Earn an Information Technology Master's?

The M.B.A. in Information Technology is designed to provide an extensive base of knowledge of managerial responsibilities. An M.B.A. program is designed for students who desire a more general management background than an M.S. in Information Technology, which has more of a specialization and focus in the field.

Career opportunities after you complete the M.B.A. program through the Department of Information Technology and Decision Sciences are abundant. An M.B.A. with a concentration in Information Technology supports growth and development from two perspectives:

  • If you have an established career path, the Information Technology concentration provides you the opportunity to gain the broader, more general perspective necessary for promotion to leading managerial positions.
  • If you are preparing for the business world, the combination of an undergraduate degree with an M.B.A. concentration in Information Technology provides an excellent foundation for additional career opportunities.
