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.
