Overview

You already know that IT is a fast-paced, ever-changing industry. Staying at the top of your game presents endless challenges. Systems, platforms and devices constantly need updating, and disruptive technologies continue to dramatically change the way things are done. Furthermore, business is constantly evolving. As a working professional, how do you stay one step ahead?

An online Master of Information Technology Management (MITM) gives you the skills required to navigate these rapid developments with ease. You will 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.

Employees with skills in both IT and management are highly sought-after, in fact, there is expected to be a 14 per cent growth in ICT Managers in the five years to 2023 (Australian Government Job Outlook 2020). 

Secure yourself that competitive edge, drive success and innovation at any workplace, and influence change and underpin future business growth with a Master of Information Technology Management from SCU Online. Learn more about the online course offering.
