This program develops students to become T-shaped professionals in the new global, knowledge based economy by equipping them with both advanced IT technical and managerial skills needed to pursue a successful career.
In this era of market globalization, information technology has emerged as a fundamental factor in the success of business operations. The role of information technology is particularly important for service industries such as finance, insurance, real estates, transport logistics and hospitality in which efficiency provides a definite competitive edge. To improve our service industries and secure Hong Kong’s position as a leading digital city, business managers must be equipped with knowledge of most up-to-date information technology (IT) and business management, and must be able to apply that knowledge to plan and deploy information systems that enhance productivity, competitiveness and performance of their organizations. The Master of Science Program in Information and Technology Management (MSc in ITM) is specially designed to meet this need.
The Program is aimed at individuals with a technical or engineering background who would like to gain the requisite knowledge in technology management, and at business graduates who wish to acquire cutting-edge IT proficiency. The Program also offers a good foundation for students who prepare to pursue further studies in PhD.
