This month Computerworld magazine has picked up on the trend of IT people (the "cardigans") needing business skills, and business people (the "suits") needing IT skills. If you are a suit or a cardigan who wants to get ahead you might be interested in attending an information evening to learn about what the Master of Business and Technology (MBT) program at UNSW has to offer.
What's the MBT? "The Master of Business & Technology ( MBT ) Program is tailor-made for busy managers and professionals in technology driven environments who want to elevate their careers. MBT courses focus on business, on technology, and on the point at which they intersect. The MBT Program is designed to be undertaken part-time, in combination with full-time employment. Customise your study through MBT's flexible program structure and work with experienced class facilitators and co-participants in online or Sydney-based face-to face classes."
They have been holding information evening in recent weeks around the country and the last two are coming in Parramatta (NSW) on 20th April and Wollongong (NSW) on the 21st April. As I'm just about to complete my MBT I've been invited to speak at the Wollongong information evening on my experiences of the MBT and what it takes to complete it.
You need to RSVP if you want to attend go along to either of these remaining information evenings or you can request an information pack.
