As a Business Information Technology professional, you'll be the bridge between technology and business. Your career will require you to solve technical challenges and communicate these solutions in a way people can understand.
BCIT recognizes the importance of giving you all of the skills you need to succeed. That's why, rather than focusing solely on building your tech skills, we also include general business courses. This differentiating factor will set you apart from the rest as you create and grow your career. No matter the industry or position, as a BITMAN graduate you'll have the skills to succeed.
BCIT's polytechnic learning model focuses on applied academics and hands-on learning. You'll learn in a 'set', a group of 20-25 students you take all of your classes with. This allows you to build strong connections with your classmates and get one-on-one support from your instructors.
You'll also benefit from knowing exactly when you'll launch your career. Being accepted into the Information Technology Management program guarantees you a seat in every class you need to graduate - no need for individual class registration, no taking classes you don't need, and no wondering when you'll graduate.
A Diploma in Business Information Technology Management from BCIT will provide a diverse and challenging career path.
Today's IT opportunities require both business and technology skills. You'll be prepared to take advantage of these opportunities and grow your career.
Hands-on projects and connections with employers give you the real world experience that employers are looking for.
BCIT's learning model is built around a foundation of teamwork. You'll make connections with your classmates, instructors and employers that will last a lifetime and help advance your career.
Your career options and earning potential are diverse and exciting:
Do you have a degree, diploma, or completed a substantial amount of post-secondary courses? You may qualify for advanced placement into the Business Information Technology Management program. Students that qualify for advanced placement can enter the program in the middle of first year or the beginning of the second year depending on the number of transfer credits received.
Acceptance into advanced placement is dependent on a number of factors including: seat availability, course transfer credits, and the number of applications received. Most applicants are required to complete additional course work before entering their desired program. Early application is strongly recommended.
