Career Progression

This course is perfect for anyone with a desire to pursue a career in the field of IT or looking to learn the fundamentals of information technology management. Upon graduation, students will have acquired the knowledge, skills and confidence required to secure a lucrative and successful career in the field.

This is a field which is constantly growing, meaning there is a huge number of opportunities available so graduates will be spoilt for choice. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the computer and information technology field is expected to grow by 13 percent from 2016-2026 — faster than the average growth rate of all occupations. By 2026, another 557,100 jobs are expected to be added within the field.

Currently, there is a digital skills gap which has a significant impact on organisations in every sector of the global economy. In research conducted by the Capgemini Digital Transformation Group (in collaboration with LinkedIn), one of the findings noted that “the challenge of the digital talent gap is no longer just an HR issue; it is an organisation-wide phenomenon that affects all areas of the business.” Additionally, researchers found that “the talent gap in soft digital skills is more pronounced than in hard digital skills.” The research also found that the soft digital skills in greatest demand include “customer-centricity” and a “passion for learning,” while the hard digital skills needed the most are cybersecurity and cloud computing (nu.edu 2021). This means now is a better time than ever to gain a Master’s in Information Technology Management.
