A concentration in Management of Information technology prepares you for a wide variety of career opportunities, including:
Systems analysts determine the requirements of prospective technology solutions by identifying the needs and problems of potential users of the systems.
Data administrators manage and control the integrity, security, and maintenance of data stored in a computer system. They are responsible for timely recovery from computer system failures and for continually adjusting the system to meet evolving user needs.
A business analyst provides support for decisions in functional areas of an organization. This support often involves developing and incorporating computer systems into the planning and decision-making process.
Information Center Consultant
Large organizations that need to manage “end user” computing by non-information systems personnel rely on their help desks. Information center consultants bring their knowledge of computer systems and interpersonal communications skills to work with managers across all company platforms. Consultants often move on to specialize within functional areas or become information center managers themselves.
The growing computer industry continues to have a need for sales reps who have the knowledge to identify solutions that meet their clients’ needs.
By understanding what an information system will be required to do, a systems designer is able to create a customized plan or model that meets those needs.
A programmer translates detailed instructions on how an information system should work into language understood by a computer, which ultimately implements the system software used by others.
