The Information Technology Management (ITM) curriculum prepares graduates to bridge the gap between the problems of business and the capabilities of information technology. ITM is also known as MIS (Management Information Systems), BIS (Business Information Systems), and sometimes simply as IS (Information Systems).
Scheller ITM graduates work primarily in three areas:
Consulting / Systems Analysis and Design
Information Use, Security, and Privacy
The broad business degree from Scheller combined with knowledge in these specialized areas equips Scheller ITM grads to understand business problems, design solutions, and work with developers to create them. Scheller ITM graduates work in every industry, in every area of business, in organizations large and small, for-profit and nonprofit, all over the world.
ITM students are strongly recommended to take CS 1301 to fulfill the Institute's computing requirement instead of CS 1315. CS 1301 provides a firm foundation in algorithmic thinking and may satisfy a prerequisite requirement for other CS courses in the concentration.
After completing MGT 2210 - Information Systems & Digital Transformation (previously MGT 2200), students complete six information technology management courses — at least three from Group A and the remainder from Group A or Group B. Students must earn a grade of "C" or higher in all courses for a concentration.
