Become an IT Leader
The new program will launch in Fall 2017 with application deadline July 1, 2017.
The 12-month cohort based degree uses a hybrid model of online and face-to-face instruction held every other Saturday (for a total of 23 Saturdays). Students interested in obtaining the EMIT degree will take an equivalent of 30 credit hours and meet every other Saturday for their face-to-face sessions. We are only accepting 15 qualified students for this first cohort.
Are You A Future EMIT Student?
Our newest degree is exclusive and diverse. We're ideally looking for individuals with over 6 years experience in the IT landscape. Wondering how you'll fit in? Our students share these characteristics:
You know IT. You work it every day, and maybe - you go home and do a few side projects to keep yourself sharp. You work at a Fortune 500 company, launched a start-up or are somewhere in between - it doesn't matter where you've busted your chops, what matters to us is that you know your stuff and you're ready for that next step.
An Eye on Leadership
Maybe you're working in that cube or out of your garage, and you have your eye on that corner office – wherever that may be for you. You've shown leadership qualities: you take on projects, you run your own business, you signed up for service. Simply put: leadership is your goal.
The EMIT degree is exclusive and fast-paced. We're looking for individuals who thrive in that environment, and work hard to bring the team together. We'll work you, but the benefits will far outweigh the Saturdays spent in the classroom over trips to the lake.
