Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Management

Available Online

The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Management (BSITM) program is designed to meet the increasing demand for the management of information technology in consulting, marketing and sales support, customer services and support, information security and management, and management of IT projects. This program is designed to provide students with an understanding of basic information technology management concepts and practical technology skills. Graduates are prepared for positions in the areas of (1) Client and Server Management, Administration, and Technical Support, (2) IT Project Management Associate, (3) Information Security Analyst, and (4) Network/Systems Administrator and Support Specialist. CAEL Portfolio In partnership with the Council on Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), National University has developed a portfolio-based system of demonstrating that a student has achieved the course outcomes for University undergraduate courses. Credit may apply towards both the lower division and upper division credit requirements of the University’s undergraduate degree programs unless specified otherwise in policy or limited by the state or jurisdiction of a student’s residence. In our Portfolio program, students demonstrate that what they already know is equivalent to what they would have learned in an equivalent college course. The program is designed to be as flexible as possible to meet student’s needs. Students may have acquired this knowledge through past employment, independent reading and study, training programs or in-service courses, volunteer service, cultural or artistic pursuits, hobbies and recreational pastimes, community or religious activities, organizational memberships, adult education, non-credit courses, study abroad, military training not evaluated for credit by ACE, or other experiences. A portfolio enables students to identify and articulate this knowledge, and potentially earn credit for it. Students learn the process of identifying areas of course-equivalent learning and portfolio development skills through the PRLX2100X course offered through the Division of Extended Learning. The resulting portfolio is submitted for review by Subject Matter Experts for potential award of credit. For further information regarding the Portfolio program, please contact extlearning@nu.edu.
