Information Technology (IT)
An MBA in Information Technology (IT) will cover a number of topics around the intersection between business and technology, including, for example, courses in Management of Information Technology, Enterprise Resource Planning, and IT Applications in the Business Environment. Most MBAs in IT will also touch on other relevant topics, including Project Management, Operations Management, and Finance / Accounting. Many of these programs aim to help students interested in technology to understand the managerial and strategic implications of technology in business.
Some students who already have experience in IT may look to use an MBA to develop their business acumen, build leadership skills, and even transition into other areas of business. Other students who don’t already have experience in the field might use an MBA in Information Technology to transition into an IT-related role.
Many general MBA programs, even if they don’t offer specializations in IT management, will offer IT-related courses. Beyond MBA specializations in IT, business schools might also related specializations like Management of Technology and Operations, Management of Information Systems, and Technology Leadership.
Because most firms have IT systems, post-MBA careers in IT can be found across many industries and around the globe. Specifically, an MBA in IT can lead to a number of careers, such as Information Technology Consultant, IT Project Manager, Business Analyst, and CTO, among others.
