Program Details

To help meet the growing demand for business leaders with IT specialization, WGU created its Bachelor of Science in Business–Information Technology Management degree program. Curriculum includes courses in business strategy, network and security, project management, business ethics, and business of IT.  This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)—a leading specialized accreditation association for business education—and is designed with input from industry experts. Graduates of the B.S. Business–IT Management degree program will be qualified to fill a variety of leadership roles, including: product security incident manager, vice president of technical services, or chief business security officer.

Online programs allow for unparalleled flexibility, so students can complete coursework whenever and wherever works best for their schedule. Students also benefit from WGU's competency-based learning model, which makes it possible for them to potentially graduate faster by completing courses as quickly as they can prove mastery of the required material. Additionally, Faculty Mentors work one-on-one with WGU students, providing dedicated coaching, guidance, and support from enrollment through graduation.
