About Texas MSITM

Information technology now continually alters the experience of business; in fact, more than half of the top 25 highest paying jobs are now found within the information technology sector.

The Texas Master of Science in Information Technology and Management (MSITM)* responds to the need for talent with a 10 month, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) eligible degree to create business leaders in cognitive computing, advanced analytics, and emerging technologies.

MSITM is open to all undergraduate majors and no work experience is required to apply. We offer students small classes taught by top-ranked interdisciplinary faculty as well as hands-on experience working with real-world companies. As a MSITM student, you'll also have the benefit of McCombs Career Services, which offers one-on-one coaching to prepare you for a career following graduation.

*The MSITM Program is pending final approval by the University of Texas System
