About Information Technology Management

More so than ever, 21st century organizations recognize the value of information and the competitive advantage that it can provide. The result has been a huge demand for professionals who understand how to manage information and the related technology. The Information Technology Management (ITM) program provides students with the skills needed to evaluate, design and implement information systems and manage organizational technology and IT personnel.

As an ITM Major, you will take business, management and liberal arts courses related to information systems and technology to receive an integrated, interdisciplinary and international education in the theory and practice of information, technology and modern business.

The typical ITM student would have an interest in problem solving using technology, business and management. The program stresses “hands on” learning using real world applications and projects. Students can use electives to tailor the degree to specific interests such as cyber security, web development and data analytics.

4+1 FLEX MBA Option Available!

As a student in the Anisfield School of Business, you may also want to consider the pathway to the 4+1 Flex MBA Program, where you can earn both your undergraduate and your Master’s degree in just five years.  Undergraduate business majors get 12 credits of MBA Foundational courses waived, so you can get your MBA by taking just ten more courses (30 credits) after graduation.   Having an MBA is a universally-recognized credential that gives you an advantage in the job market and the skills and knowledge to take on leadership roles in business.  For more information please go to https://www.ramapo.edu/mba/ or email Dr. Juan Cabrera, MBA Program Director, at jcabrera@ramapo.edu
