The Terry College's online Master of Internet Technology degree program has been renamed the Master of Business and Technology to more accurately reflect the nature of the program and current industry practices.

Designed for working professionals, the part-time program is offered entirely through online courses and can be completed in two years. Students in the MBT program learn graduate-level information systems management and leadership development. Graduates from the program are highly sought after by employers with 100 percent of this past year's class employed by leading companies in Georgia and beyond.

"The program has always been cutting-edge and sought to meet the demand for business and technical knowledge brought about by the boom in business use of digital technologies," said Craig Piercy, director of the program and senior lecturer in Terry's management information systems department. "The program's new name appropriately emphasizes that this is a business degree. Our students leave the program fully prepared to become leaders who work at the intersection of business management and information systems."
