Certificate in Information Technology Strategy and Execution

Continual innovation of digital products and platforms requires strategic alignment of information technology to ensure a firm’s success. Today, successful organizations rely on leadership from employees who can shape policy, manage projects and deliver return on investments in technology.

The Certificate in Information Technology Strategy and Execution is a new interdisciplinary post-baccalaureate certificate program, jointly offered by the LeBow College of Business and College of Computing & Informatics (CCI), designed to train the next generation of digital strategists.

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.
