ADP Information Technology (2 years)

Introduction

Information Technology is a discipline that has grown at a breakneck pace and is still evolving every day. It has sparked innovation across the board, including in science, engineering, business, entertainment, and education. Employers prefer graduates who are as confident in their business skills as they are in their technical skills. Students who excel in both of these areas will stand out to potential employers, putting them ahead of other graduates in an increasingly competitive employment market. The two-year associate degree in Information Technology is aimed to provide students with both IT and business management abilities
