The MITM program is developed to meet the changing user and IS needs in the industry - make users more IT proficient, and systems developers more focused on business issues. To this end, the program is structured around five major components (described below). The first two (management and IS core) provide the student with management and IS basics, the middle two (IT Foundations and Electives) provide the role of IT in support of development of generalized and specialized (or focused) systems, and the last component provides an opportunity to synthesize these concepts through cases or a project.
