  • ITG 400: System security management : The information security arena contains a broad array of multi-level models for assessing, planning, implementing and monitoring the mitigation of security risks. At the very core of this information security spectrum are the actual system and network devices which store, manage, transmit and secure information. This course is designed to provide a working knowledge of issues and techniques surrounding the proper safeguarding of operating systems and related components. Filled with Information Assurance topics, this course offers a solid base for system administrators and technical managers.
  • ITG 411: Introduction to enterprise Computing Environments: Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems represents integrated strategy for management of information among organizations, suppliers and customers.
  • ITG 415 : Managing for quality improvement :Operational aspect of quality improvement. Topics include statistical process control, design of experiments, and quality management programs.
  • ITG 420 : Detection of Deception and Intent : Our focus in this course is geared towards developing software tools and techniques dealing with the automatic deception and intent. The course will be project-based involving exchange of ideas, opportunities, challenges, and research issues as well as development of software tools and techniques, in the area of detection of deception and intent.
  • ITG 450: Production and operations management: Productive systems, including service type industries; activities entailed in selecting, designing, operating, controlling, and updating systems. Forecasting, aggregate planning, MRP, inventory models under uncertainty, scheduling.
  • ITG 451: Frameworks and standards of IT governance : This course will enable students to learn about the frameworks as well as the standards of IT governance.s
  • ITG 460: Project Management:  This course specifically addresses the nine project management “knowledge areas”, the five project management “process groups” and the 4-way constraints of project management (i.e., scope, time, cost, quality).
  • ITG 470: Business Intelligence: Web and social media analytics: This course will provide students the opportunity to learn about Business Intelligence (BI) theory and combine it with powerful social media tools to gain insights into the emerging social media phenomena.
  • ITG 480: Fundamentals of Object-oriented programming: The course is intended to provide a solid foundation in and understanding of the principles of object-oriented programming language using the Java language and/or to serve as a refresher for more advanced work.
  • ITG 490: Software design and integration: This course aims to equip students with advanced object-oriented system design and software engineering principles and techniques to tackle modern challenges facing the development and maintenance of production-quality software systems in today’s fast-paced business environments. .

  • ITG 505: Business Foundations for IT : This course will integrate many business foundations in support of MIS students in the MS program. In today’s environment, IT solutions have to support the competitive needs of organizations and recognize the inter-organizational nature of business processes. In addition, the IT solutions have to support the financial well-being of a firm as well as its responsibility to various stakeholders. This course uses five modules: business strategy in a global environment, process analysis and re-design in an ever expanding value chain; IT in support of these business processes, economic justification, and social implications.
  • ITG 510: Information technology audit : This course covers using controls to protect information assets. Topics include internal and external IT auditing, the role of auditing role in information security, the IT audit process, system independent IT audit processes, system dependent IT audit processes, auditing outsourced IT systems and resources.
  • ITG 515 : Information Security Risk management : The objective of this course is to provide students a thorough and operational knowledge of information security so that this critical area is recognized as a management issue and not an I.T. issue
  • ITG 520: Enterprise data management: This course introduces the student to fundamentals of database analysis, design, and implementation. Emphasis is on practical aspects of business process analysis and the accompanying database design and development.
  • ITG 525: Data Mining for business intelligence : This course will cover data mining for business intelligence. Data mining refers to extracting or “mining” knowledge from large amounts of data. It consists of several techniques that aim at discovering rich and interesting patterns that can bring value or “business intelligence” to organizations. Examples of such patterns include fraud detection, consumer behavior, and credit approval. The course will cover the most important data mining techniques — classification, clustering, association rule mining, visualization, prediction.
  • ITG 530: Database design and development: In this class students will study the principles of database management systems, their design, and development. Recent alternatives to the classical relational model will also be examined.
