Meet the Faculty of the UW Master’s in Information Technology Management

webteam November 11, 2020

The online UW Master of Science in Information Technology Management faculty is one of the program’s greatest strengths. You won’t find another IT management program—online or otherwise—that brings such diverse expertise together in one place. That’s because the MS in IT Management program is a collaboration between UW Extended Campus and five University of Wisconsin campuses: UW–La Crosse, UW–Oshkosh, UW–Parkside, UW–Stevens Point, and UW–Superior. All courses in this online program are developed and taught by University of Wisconsin faculty—the same faculty who teach our on-campus courses.
