Information Technology Management

Effective Information Technology Management (IT) is crucial to large and small enterprises in every sector. The University at Albany School of Business has been at the forefront of this field (also known as Management Information Systems or MIS) since 1970. We were one of the first AACSB-accredited programs to recognize the importance of information systems (IS) for business and to incorporate information systems training across our business curriculum.

In addition to the invaluable grounding all students get in ITM, you can choose to concentrate in ITM as an undergraduate or as a full-time graduate MBA student, or you can choose an elective track in ITM as an Evening MBA student. You may also combine ITM with another discipline. All of our ITM courses foster strength in both technical and business applications and help you develop these crucial abilities: 

  • Critical thinking
  • Business problem solving
  • Consulting skills
  • Real-world project experiences
  • A cross-functional enterprise approach
  • Business process analysis
  • Facilitating technology solutions

Practica and Placements

You will have ample opportunity to apply the ITM concepts and principles taught in the classroom to real-world problems by working in teams on consulting projects in client organizations. The projects provide hands-on experience in the context of normal business deadlines, expectations and quality standards.

Our track record in focused education and career-building is based on more than 40 years of experience. ITM faculty are dedicated to helping you find the right job through networking with companies and ITM alumni. Program graduates are able to move into careers including marketing, manufacturing, finance or human resources management. Employers of ITM graduates regularly report that UAlbany students "hit the ground running" and are quickly able to add value to the organization.
