The University of Sydney offers planned, targeted postgraduate programs in IT to meet the demands of the IT industry.
For technically-skilled graduates seeking career advancement in the "management ladder" of IT organisations, the University offers a course known as the Master of Information Technology Management. In this course, a background in computing skills is assumed, but the emphasis is not on developing these technical skills. The focus of the Master of Information Technology is on a thorough and detailed understanding of the management of resources such as projects, people, knowledge, and technologies in the distinctive way needed within IT organisations. The Master of Information Technology Management is specifically designed for graduates who are currently moving along, or seeking to move along, a career path through managerial roles such as Project Manager, Program Manager, General Manager of Operations (GMO), Chief Information Officer (CIO), or Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
The Master of Information Technology Management provides a selection of postgraduate units of study covering a Core set of IT management topics. Students can also choose from a number of Elective topics to add depth or breadth to their studies. For students considering study leading to a research degree, the Master of Information Technology Management has a Research Path option that can be used to gain admission to an MSc by Research or a PhD.
The Master of Information Technology Management requires 1 year (2 semesters) of full-time study.
Note that for IT graduates seeking advanced technical studies, there is a separate articulated program of the Graduate Certificate in Information Technology, the Graduate Diploma in Information Technology, and the degree of Master of Information Technology. These programs provide an excellent opportunity for students to build upon their undergraduate IT studies and extend their technical knowledge in a wide range of IT specialisations.
