MBA vs. Master of Science (MS) in IT Management: what's the difference?

Answer

Both MBA and MS IT Management degrees focus on technology and innovation. However, the MBA coursework is designed to develop skills required for business and management careers, as well as technology.

A Master of Science in IT Management has a greater focus on the science of technology and growing IT-related skills. The curriculum for both degrees may overlap somewhat depending on the program, but both also offer unique benefits.

An MBA with a concentration in IT management helps you develop the business and management skills to thrive in many types of unique environments.
