MBA | Full Time

Information Management

The Texas MBA Information Management (IM) concentration focuses on developing business leaders who understand (1) how to leverage IT to create value for customers using improved business processes and innovative information design, and (2) the strategic, financial and economic implications of IT projects. The concentration provides a strong foundation so that students can articulate the strategic and business value of IT beyond an IT-centric view and develop the expertise required to manage global resources and projects enabled through IT. Finally, the concentration strives to provide an environment for students to develop entrepreneurial thinking and leadership skills through activities such as extracurricular case competitions and projects for local organizations.
