Free training spotlight: IT management

August 23, 2016

By Lisa Dare

Trying to move into IT management?

Or have you recently become a manager?

IT managers enjoy a lot of career options and an average salary of over $130,000. The 10-year job outlook is phenomenal. And while a bachelor’s degree (at minimum) is required for most management positions, some companies will overlook this for experienced candidates.

Schooling yourself on business and management topics can help position you to become an IT manager—and succeed in the role. They can help you develop and validate your people management, communication, analytical, strategy-building and related skills.

Also, and I’m sorry about this—but you’re probably gonna have to suit up.
