Master of Information Technology Management

The Master of Information Technology Management (MITM) is a professional degree for technically skilled graduates wanting to transition into management.

The MITM prepares you for transition into management, equipping you with an in-depth understanding of key areas such as business analytics and intelligence, IT services, management of IT innovations and change management.

You will study a selection of subjects covering a core set of IT management topics. You will also have the opportunity to select from a number of elective topics in order to add depth or breadth to your studies.

While a background in computing skills is assumed, the emphasis is not on developing these technical skills. Instead, the focus of the program is on providing a thorough and detailed understanding of the management of resources such as projects, people, knowledge and technologies.

Accreditation

The MITM has been developed under the guidelines of the Australian Computer Society (ACS), and has been accredited by the ACS as a Professional Level course in information technology.
