MSc In Management and Information Technology

The role of a manager in a modern business has recently evolved in such a way that it demands a combination of management competences blended with capability to exploit the developments in computer and information technology as a powerful tool for achieving excellence in enterprise management. 

The need for a category of postgraduate programmes was voiced by the business and industrial community, especially in view of the increasingly large numbers of science and engineering graduates moving into middle managerial positions. The Masters Degree programme offered by us addresses this need and provides an opportunity for the graduates of science, engineering, management and commerce to undertake advanced studies at master’s level in the latest professional field of Management and Information Technology.
