Global IT Leadership and Management (GITLM) Concentration

The College of Information Science and Technology (CIST) and UNO's International Studies and Programs (ISP) have joined to offer an interdisciplinary "Global IT Leadership Management" (GITLM) concentration. The GITLM will foster the integration of technology and internationalization through an interdisciplinary program offered through intercampus collaboration with UNO's sister-universities in Norway, India, Germany, Austria, and China.
