Bridging IT and Business
Awareness of the importance of information technology (IT) for business is becoming wide spread. The industry has created more and more job opportunities for people who have interdisciplinary skills. Our program intends to bridge the gap between IT and business, teaching you both the domain and technical knowledge necessary to face tough challenges in the industry.

Students who earn a Master of Information Technology and Analytics (MITA) and specialize in information systems may pursue careers in information risk management with public accounting firms, who need employees with expertise in computer auditing and risk management. These same skills can also be applied in internal auditing for the review and analysis of corporate computer systems.
Applicants are expected to have a bachelor's degree and basic knowledge in calculus and statistics. We particularly welcome applicants with undergraduate degrees in business, industrial engineering, library science, information technology, computer science, and related fields.
Students may take the program on a full-time or part-time basis. Full-time students can complete the program in one year. Part-time students must be able to attend classes during the day.
Tuition, fees, and other program costs are determined by residency. Financial aid is not available through the program, but the program is closely associated with several research centers that employ students and bring them into contact with their industry and government partners:
- The Center for Information Management, Integration and Connectivity (CIMIC)
- The Center of Data Mining and Business Analytics (CDMBA)
- The Rutgers Center for Information Assurance (RUCIA)
- The Rutgers Center for Operations Research (RUTCOR)
For students who will later pursue doctoral study in information technology or accounting information systems, they will have the opportunities to take many of the same courses as students in the Rutgers Business School doctoral programs in information technology, accounting information systems, and operations research.
The Master of Information Technology and Analytics program qualifies as a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) field for international students that are considering Optional Practical Training (OPT). More information about OPT and STEM is available at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
