Management of Information and Communication Technology (B.B.A.)


Bachelor of Business Administration in Management of Information and Communication Technology (MICT)

 

The study of Management of Information and Communication Technology (MICT) is designed with a particular focus to adapt its content in a local context congruent with the needs of Egyptian organizations and capable of addressing IT challenges that arise in such organizations. The MICT curriculum provides students with a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences while enabling them to develop expertise in business management and information technology. This program is a joint degree between the School of Business (BUS) and the School of Sciences and Engineering (SSE).

Students who select a major in MICT should be able to function as a user advocate and select, create, apply, integrate and administer computing technologies to meet the needs of users within a societal and organizational context. Equipped with this knowledge, the students enrolled in the major will be able to analyze, design and manage information and communication technology infrastructure.

The number of students accepted in the MICT program is limited. This is done through the declaration of major process for science students only. Students seeking to declare the MICT program must have completed the three courses listed below. Based on the available space a limited number of students who have successfully completed these courses and who meet the GPA requirements as determined by the department will be accepted in the major.
