Information Technology Project ManagementThe principles of project management and organizing and managing resources in order to complete projects in designated time-frames. In this course, students learn how to use IT architecture to bring order to the sometimes chaotic world of information systems, by defining a set of guidelines and standards and then adhering to them. Students learn to view IT architecture as a reflection and integral part of business strategy, rather than as a stand-alone entity.

Each topic is viewed pragmatically, through case studies analyzing how selected companies implemented various IT strategies and how those strategies affected the bottom line.
