IT Career Before
You Even Graduate.
ONE IT DEGREE. TWO BENEFITS.
Earning your IT degree. It's the foundation for a successful IT career and a secure future. However, earning key IT certifications has become just as important as graduating with an accredited IT degree. So we'll help you prepare to earn both...at the same time.
Instead of earning your degree, then taking additional certification prep courses, our combined curriculum will help you prepare for exams leading to industry certifications in areas such as security, networking, and Microsoft technologies.
Prepare for key IT certifications while earning your IT degree. That's just a smarter way to advance your career.
WHY IT CERTIFICATIONS MATTER:
IT certifications demonstrate that you're up-to-date on the latest technical requirements, and they demonstrate to employers that you're serious about your job. The program is expected to start Spring 2014.
In many cases, organizations simply won't hire individuals without certifications.
TREMENDOUS GROWTH. YOUR POTENTIAL.
An accredited IT degree. Highly valued certifications. They should add up to an in-demand employee for an ever-growing career field.
- The median salary for an IT manager is $120,000.*
- Over 95% of those responding to our graduate survey say their degree helped them obtain a new job.**
That adds up to a degree with countless opportunities. In fact, national media and industry organizations have reported that technology executives will continue growing their IT departments, for positions like:
- Information Security Analyst
- Data Security Administrator
- Computer Software Engineer
- Web Programmer
