The eIM 36 credit curriculum consists of 24 credits of core courses and 12 credits of elective courses. To give students greater flexibility in choosing electives, the program has both full-semester courses that are 3.00 credits each and half-semester courses (marked with **) that are 1.50 credits each. Students may substitute one full-semester elective with two half-semester electives or vice-versa.
Elective courses are grouped into three different areas of interest referred to as concentrations:
The Information Management (IM) business- driven base program concentration trains information-technology-based professionals to lead and oversee the process of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship — what we call i2e.
The Information Management (IMCIO) concentration allows information-technology professionals to develop their management and leadership skills with a focus on running IT as a business and receive certification from New York State (pending approval) as a CIO.
The Information Management in Information Security and Privacy (IMCISO) concentration allows information-technology- based professionals to develop their management and leadership skills with a focus on cyber-security and receive certification from New York State* as a CISO.
* New York State CISO certification from Global Information Cyber Security Association
