IT project coordinator

The project coordinator works across groups, aligning internal team members and external stakeholders. IT project coordinators may coordinate project phases and schedules, arrange support services, order supplies, and track progress. The coordinator typically reports to the project manager and serves as a department liaison to product developers and marketing executives.

IT project coordination brings together business administration expertise and a background in information technology. Most IT project coordinators get their start with a computer science degree or information technology certification. A bachelor's degree in management information systems (MIS), for example, offers a combined business and technology education. Coordinators can advance into project management with Project Management Professional (PMP) certification or an MBA.
