Information Technology and Information Systems have become one of the most important parts of a successful business. The people who work in information technology are trained, experienced people who have spent a great deal of time learning programming and developing. However, there is always a need for the leaders of the company to understand the needs and direct the actions of the information systems developers, and find ways to make the design and administration efforts efficient and cost-effective. There are very few titled and lettered certifications available for Information Technology Management because the work is relatively new compared to traditional management, but private institutions related to the education of information technology management. Furthermore, private educational institutions offer educational programs and opportunities to certify professionals in their field.
Florida Tech University created the Mini Masters of Business Administration For-Credit Graduate Certificate program, designed to meet the needs of students in multiple specializations. The Information Technology Management program is designed to offer students the same education that is offered by IT Management certification programs and can be completed in 8 months. Because the program is offered entirely online, students and professionals can seek the certification on a schedule of their own choosing, allowing them to advance their knowledge and certification without sacrificing their careers or private lives to maintain a traditional classroom education.
Graduates of the program will receive certification showing their completion of the Mini MBA program and will gain advanced knowledge of high-level business concepts needed for management and leadership positions, increase career opportunity, and increase their marketability as a professional with this program. In addition, Mini MBA credits can be used towards completion of a Florida Tech University MBA degree in the future.
Students must have a minimum of a bachelor's degree and 2-3 years work experience in the field. Bachelor's degree must be from an accredited institution and a minimum 3.0 GPA.
