UNCG Bryan School to Offer Information Technology Certificate

GREENSBORO – The University of North Carolina at Greensboro will offer a post-baccalaureate certificate in information technology this fall.

The 12-credit-hour certificate will be given through the Department of Information Systems and Operations Management at the Bryan School for Business and Economics.

“This program is for people who already have a bachelor’s degree and who may already be working with information systems but want to know more about them,” said Dr. Kwasi Amoako-Gyampah, incoming department head of information systems and operations management. “We think there is a market out there in the community for such a program.”

The 7.5 credit hours of required coursework will include classes in desktop data management, database applications and business applications programming. The remaining 4.5 credit hours will be made up of three courses from a list of six elective classes.

Prerequisites for the certificate include a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, a personal essay about career goals, a resume, three letters of recommendation and a completed graduate school application. Additional requirements such as TOEFL or English Language Competency may be requested from applicants.
