Master Degree Program in IT Project Management
Software development is one of the successful branches of many world economies. The world financial and economic crisis has reflected on the software business less than other branches. Many IT professionals manage projects but their knowledge and skills in this area are based mainly on their own experience, which is often obtained through trial and error.
