Lake Erie College Parker MBA program to launch concentration in information technology management

Academics,

In Lake Erie College’s efforts to provide the most in-demand programs for today’s professionals, the College’s Parker MBA program continues to grow. Beginning with the spring 2016 semester, graduate students in the program will have the option to pursue a new concentration in information technology management.

Designed to meet the emerging market demand for IT management professionals, the information technology management concentration will train participants in how to lead an organization’s strategies to most effectively define, store, manage, protect, share and distribute information to relevant stakeholders.

Courses in this track of the Parker MBA program will include coverage of data and database management, information systems design and development, data communications, computer networks and security. Altogether, these courses will give LEC MBA graduates a competitive advantage in a growing field.

"We expect the program to be attractive to area IT professionals who aspire to managerial and leadership roles in the IT or operational sides of their organizations,” said Bob Trebar, dean of the School of Business. "It will also appeal to current business managers seeking the technical understanding to manage and lead IT-related organizations.”
