Management of Information Technology, Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Management of Information Technology provides professionals with an opportunity to advance their level of competence in the management and applications of computing and information technology through formal training. Coursework towards this graduate certificate can be used for credit towards the M.S. in Information Technology . However, its primary objective is to provide a well-defined target for students who want to advance their knowledge and skills in applying and managing information technology, but do not necessarily wish to complete all the requirements for the M.S. in Information Technology . The certificate may be pursued concurrently with any of the graduate degree programs at UNC Charlotte.

Admission Requirements

This graduate certificate program is open to all applicants who hold a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution with a minimum overall GPA of 2.8 and Junior/Senior GPA of 3.0, on a 4.0 scale. In addition, applicants are expected to have substantial working knowledge of applications of information technology.

The requirements on GPA may be waived if an applicant is currently enrolled and in good standing in a graduate degree program at UNC Charlotte.

As part of an application for the graduate certificate program, applicants are required to submit a brief (one-to-two page) statement of educational and work experience in applying information technology.  All applications are handled centrally through the Office of Graduate Admissions.  Note: the admission process for the graduate certificate is separate from the admission process for a M.S. degree.

Certificate Requirements

The Certificate requires 15 credit hours of coursework. All requirements must be completed within four years of studies, starting from the time when the first course for the certificate is taken. Coursework taken for one graduate certificate may not be counted towards a second graduate certificate.

Total = 15 Credit Hours
