Who is it for?
Alma’s CIT program is for students who want to be the information technology leaders of the future. Our students come from all walks of life and a wide range of technical experience. Some students will possess technical bachelor’s degrees and are looking for other advanced skills; some will have little current technical proficiency but are looking to make a career move into information technology.
What all students will have in common is a strong intellectual curiosity, the desire to be academically challenged at the graduate level, and the goal to make a lasting impact on their profession and their lives by bringing advanced communication and information technology skills as part of their ever-evolving skill set.
