Thanks to the critical role that technology now plays in organizations, there’s a lot more room for technology professionals to advance into management positions. Companies are increasingly moving their infrastructures to cloud-based systems; big data analytics impact departments from marketing to finance to HR; and IT security must constantly stay ahead of new threats.
Companies need leaders who understand how to implement and manage technology at the business level. As a result, employers are creating attractive opportunities for technology management professionals. Glassdoor named IT project manager as one of the 25 Best Jobs in America for 2015 with an average base salary of $103,710, depending on experience and company.
Because technology management positions are often mission-critical to the business, many employers favor candidates who have formal education in the field, like a technology management bachelor’s degree.
The good news is that getting a degree in technology management can be easier than you might think, especially if you have some work and college experience, which is often the case for IT professionals.
We created the Peirce College Technology Management degree program with this exact situation in mind. It was designed for working adults who have at least 45 previous college credits and want to go back to school to get the degree they need to take their career to the next level. Here’s an overview of Peirce College’s Technology Management degree program:
- Take courses online, on campus, or both. You can also take accelerated classes. The experience is the same whichever format you choose.
- Transfer in up to 90 previously earned college credits. Put the work you’ve already done to good use!
- Starting this fall, our flexible delivery program will let you make a weekly choice whether to attend on campus or online.
- If you have previously earn credits, or you have industry experience that allows you to get credit for work experience, you can skip entry-level courses and focus on the subjects you really need to learn.
- Sharpen your problem-solving, technology, and leadership skills that employers are demanding.
- Learn from academically and professionally qualified faculty who are dedicated to addressing your specific needs.
- Get a leg up on your new career with skills coaching and academic counseling from the Walker Center or Career Development Services.
