Certificate in Information Technology and Management 

With technology driving almost every industry, more and more professionals will be needed to lead at the intersection of business, information technology and management. Drexel’s new graduate Certificate in Information Technology and Management provides fundamental knowledge of the business applications and the management and administration of information technology.

An interdisciplinary post-baccalaureate certificate program jointly offered by Drexel’s LeBow College of Business and College of Computing & Informatics (CCI), the Cerificate in Information Technology and Management is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to manage information technology successfully in an organizational environment.

This certificate is part of a suite of five business information technology certificates that can be applied toward Drexel’s Master of Science in Business Information Technology (MSBIT), also offered through LeBow and CCI.
