Ranked a Tier 1 Best National University by U.S. News & World Report, regionally accredited Florida Tech has launched a new Master of Science in Information Technology with a Specialization in Enterprise Resource Planning and Master of Science in Information Technology with a Specialization in Database Administration, 100% online.
Florida Tech created these two degree specializations, powered through Bisk’s video-based e-learning technology, to address the increased demand for information technology professionals created as healthcare and other industries deal with increasingly complex data challenges. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2014-15 Edition, general employment of database administrators (DBAs) is expected to grow 15% by 2022. Employment of DBAs in medical and surgical hospitals is projected to see even greater growth at 43%.
Students who enroll in the MS Information Technology/Enterprise Resource Planning or MS Information Technology/Database Administration will gain an overall understanding of information technology theories, concepts and applied practices, including project management, organizational behavior and information security management. Students will also engage in courses specifically designed to cover their specialization and help them acquire critical knowledge of these facets of IT.
“With industries such as healthcare and computer systems design poised for significant IT job growth, we are pleased to offer two new MSIT specializations that will prepare professionals to meet that demand,” said Brian Ehrlich, Associate Vice President of Online Learning at Florida Institute of Technology.
Who Should Enroll
The new MSIT specializations are ideal for both existing information technology professionals wanting to transition into a higher level position, and professionals with no information technology experience looking to gain industry knowledge. These distinguished degrees can help students prepare for a variety of roles, including database administrator, systems architect, director of information technology, chief information officer and others.
Enrollment starts December 16, 2014. For more information or to enroll at Florida Tech, go to floridatechonline.com or call 855-300-1469.
