MASTER OF SCIENCE IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (MSIT)

OVERVIEW

In order for a company to have a competitive advantage in today's business environment, it is essential to have highly qualified staff with the knowledge and skills to effectively use Information Technology. 
The MSIT program is offered on 2 levels by top international IT consultants with industrial work experience in the Cambodian Industry: 

  1. The MSIT program provides students an opportunity to further develop their IT knowledge and learn how to apply it in the real world. It prepares them for a career as an IT consultant or a Systems Analyst; and
  2. The MSIT with Management program provides students an opportunity to further develop their IT skills as well as their managerial knowledge by taking other subjects offered to MBA students. This program will give the ambitious students an opportunity to reach the very top in their career to positions such as Chief Information Officer or even Chief Executive Officer.

The two MSIT programs equip graduates with advanced knowledge and skills in selected areas of information technology. They focus on the understanding needed to communicate between senior management, technical experts and users, thus assisting organizations to use information technology more effectively. 

The programs will enable students to understand what opportunities are offered by information technology, as well as its limitations, and therefore make effective management decisions in applying IT. 

They aim to provide graduates with the intellectual tools and practical experience to enable them to act as bridges between management and technical computer
 

CURRICULUM STRUCTURE
