Organizations are driven by and depend on data—and they need leaders who can protect that information and strategically analyze it to achieve business goals.
Our innovative curriculum is one of the few nationally—and the only undergraduate program in the State University of New York (SUNY) system—that focuses on both technical and business skills. You will receive practical programming experience while developing critical soft skills through the curriculum’s strong management component and learn how to leverage technology to deliver results.

**Course enrollment requires admission to the ITM major starting in a fall semester.
If you repeat a prerequisite course for our majors, the second grade is counted, even if that grade is lower than the grade you earned the first time. You may not take a course for a third time.
Students must successfully complete the eight prerequisite courses to be permitted to take the required courses for the major and meet the stated minimum admission requirements (minimum B grades in MGS 101, MGS 102, and MGG 150, 3.0 prerequisite GPA, 3.0 UB GPA, 3.0 overall GPA, and 60 earned credit hours)
Admission to the BS in Information Technology and Management is limited and highly competitive.
First-Year Admission to the Program
New first-year students must gain admission to UB. To be considered for admission to ITM major, select it as your major on the UB application. All applicants will be reviewed by the major's admissions committee, and the top 50 will be offered admission. This is a fall admission major only.
Transfer Admission to the Program
Transfer students must first gain admission to the university. After accepting admission to UB and submitting a deposit, new incoming transfer students who select Information Technology and Management on their application will automatically have their transcripts reviewed by the School of Management. Students must meet the minimum standards to be considered, but should be mindful that space is limited.
Current UB Students Applying to the Program
Current UB students who did not apply to the School of Management at entry to UB and who have a cumulative minimum GPA of 3.0 and wish to apply to the BS in Information Technology and Management major will be considered for admission on a space availability basis. New students are only admitted to the ITM major for a fall semester start. If you are interested in this major, you must submit a Major Change Request in a spring or summer.

A student’s degree requirements are determined by the year they begin as a matriculated student at UB. There are sometimes slight curricular adjustments from year to year. Therefore, students should always refer to their academic advisement report for their specific degree requirements in consultation with their academic advisor.
