Best Online Master's in Information Technology Program | AIU
Fall (Aug - Dec 2022)

Master in Information Technology

The Master in Information technology program is specifically designed for experienced business professionals and managers seeking upward career mobility or professionals who want to broaden their business knowledge.

The focus of your program is your personalized Degree Plan. The Degree Plan is a detailed blueprint of the courses you will need to complete in order to earn your degree. The Degree Plan also lays out the accompanying learning resources and assessments that compose your program. The list of courses in the Degree Plan is often referred to as the standard path. The amount of time it takes to complete your program depends on both the amount of new information you need to learn and the amount of time you plan to devote each week to study. Your program mentor and course instructors will help you assess your strengths and development needs to establish a study plan.

Your Degree Plan includes courses needed to complete your program. To obtain your degree, you will be required to demonstrate your skills and knowledge by completing the assessment(s) for each course. In general, there are two types of assessments: performance assessments and objective assessments. Performance assessments contain, in most cases, multiple scored tasks such as projects, essays, and research papers. Objective assessments include multiple-choice items, multiple-selection items, matching, short answer, drag-and-drop, and point-and-click item types, as well as case study and video-based items. Certifications verified through third parties may also be included in your program. More detailed information about each assessment is provided in each course of study.

A learning resource can be an e-textbook, online module, study guide, simulation, virtual lab, tutorial, or a combination of these. The cost of most learning resources are included in your tuition and Learning Resource Fee. They can be accessed or enrolled for through your courses. Some degree-specific resources are not covered by your tuition, and you will need to cover those costs separately. AIU also provides a robust library to help you obtain additional learning resources, as needed.

Our masters’ programs are designed to be completed in 2 academic years or 4 semesters by students enrolled on a full-time basis (9 credits hours/semester or more).

In keeping with its commitment to quality and affordable education, the American International University will offer a Differential Tuition Fee Exemption Scholarship of up to 50% off to students from developing countries who are enrolled full time in an offered program starting Fall 2021.
