Information Technology (IT) Manager

An Information Technology Manager is responsible for implementing and maintaining an organization's technology infrastructure. Businesses rely on a central information processing system to support efficient data management and communications. The IT manager monitors the organization's operational requirements, researches strategies and technology solutions, and builds the most cost-effective and efficient system to achieve those goals.

A bachelor's degree in computer science, management information systems, or a related field is the minimum qualification for an information technology management position. In view of the additional business savvy required in a management position, many aspiring IT managers supplement their computer training with an MBA degree.

According to the 2014 IT Salary Guide (courtesy of Datamation), the 2014 average salary range for an Information Technology Manager is $99,000 – $142,250. The 2014 salary range is an increase of 5.3% over this job’s 2013 salary range, which was $94,000 – $135,000.
