As a working professional, how do you stay one step ahead?

You will you learn how to convert your understanding of complex information systems into valuable business intelligence, while honing your skills as a leader and learning how to apply your knowledge to meet strategic, organisational goals.

Better yet, upon completion you’ll have developed key strengths in project management, stakeholder management and leadership – key skills in demand across the IT sector (Hudson Global, 2015).

Our Master of Information Technology Management is comprised of a wide range of units, covering many aspects of information technology and business, as well as subjects that enable you to understand the bridge between these two fields.

You will also complete a double-weighted research project. This enables you to not only understand the research methods behind reports, but also use this knowledge to develop your own report and presentation – hands-on experience while still studying.
