About the course

Our Master of Information Technology Management is comprised of a wide range of units, covering many aspects of information technology and business, as well as subjects that enable you to understand the bridge between these two fields.

You will also complete a double-weighted research project. This enables you to not only understand the research methods behind reports, but also use this knowledge to develop your own report and presentation – hands-on experience while still studying.

We support your performance via weekly activities that scaffold learning and act as a rehearsal space for the assessments.

Teaching methods

At Southern Cross University, we try to fit our course around you. Six seven-week study periods per year enable you to study part-time and still finish your degree in as little as eight month. Alternatively, adapt your enrolment to the peaks and troughs of your life by choosing which blocks to study in. It's perfect for people who travel frequently, work abroad, or need to balance work and other commitments.

We use clever, user-friendly, interactive learning software that lets you collaborate with your classmates and lecturers. Our multi-modal approach delivers content as video, audio, hands-on, practical exercises, and other media to suit all kinds of learners. Discuss and debate ideas with your peers and lecturer in dedicated forums and with other networking technology.

Each unit has its own website to keep you focused. Every week, you'll find activities, readings and case studies laid out with step-by-step instructions. As the weeks progress and your knowledge deepens, you'll be challenged by increasingly sophisticated concepts, and employ critical analysis.

Get ready for an intense but rewarding course; each seven-week unit requires approximately 20 hours of time per week. You will see the practical benefits of your further study immediately, when you begin applying your new found knowledge in whatever role you currently hold.
