There are two entry levels to the Master of Information Technology Management program. If you have completed a three year undergraduate degree program, or a four year program without a research component, you will enter the MITM at the foundation level. This will involve taking two subjects prior to starting out on the main program. If you have completed a four year degree that included a research component, you will enter directly onto the main program.
If you enter the program at the foundation level you will complete 12 subjects in total. If you go directly to the core program, you will complete 10 subjects. To complete this program, it will normally take you five or six semesters (based on 3 mandatory semesters per year where you take 2 subjects). At this rate, the degree can be completed within two years or less. If you take 3 subjects per mandatory semester, you can fast-track your degree and complete the program in four or five semesters (just over a year). Classes are held from 6:00pm - 9:30pm, Sunday to Thursday, with occasional Saturday classes. Each subject requires one evening of attendance for 11 weeks.
Foundation level students will complete two additional subjects which will be decided in consultation with the Faculty.
Candidates are required to complete nine subjects of total 60 credit points divided into seven compulsory core subjects including Thesis which is for 12 credit points and two elective subjects to be selected from the approved subjects provided.
All students will complete the following subjects that form the core of the MITM program:
