Focus Areas

The IT Management program requires four elective courses to be completed. You can choose to select courses from one of four focus areas that enable you to tailor your studies and sharpen your expertise in a particular specialty. Note: that a student is not required to select a focus area and can instead mix-and-match four electives across specialties.

Program Formats

The IT Management program is available in both an online format and an on-campus format. You can opt to take classes online, on campus, or through a combination of both.

  • On-Campus Format: In the on-campus format, classes are held at the same times every week at our downtown D.C. campus.
  • Online Format: The online master’s has the same curriculum as the on-campus format and offers access to all of the same University resources. In this format, you’ll be able to watch lectures and complete assignments on your own schedule.

You’ll have the flexibility to earn your degree at a pace that suits your schedule:

  • Full-time students typically take 9 credits (3 courses) during the fall and spring semesters. 
  • Part-time students typically take 3 to 6 credits (1 to 2 courses) during the fall and spring semesters.
  • Although students are not required to take credits during the summer semester, they have the option of registering for one or more courses in order to continue their progress year-round.

STEM OPT Extension

This program is eligible for a 24-month Optional Practical Training extension for degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM OPT) for qualified F-1 visa students.
