The Master of Internet Technology (Master of IT) Program officially began in August 2001. It is one of a few multidisciplinary masters degree programs offered by The University of Georgia. The vision is to bridge the gap between management (business) and computing (technology) instruction. The program is administered by the Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) in the Terry College of Business

The Master of IT Program is delivered over five semesters, from August of the first academic year to May of the second year. The courses are taught two evenings a week at the Georgia Gwinnett College campus, located about 35 miles from the University of Georgia campus. Students are required to complete 32 semester hours of coursework. Eleven credit hours involve project management instruction and a project internship in which students work as a team to develop an Internet-based solution for a client. Projects are done for actual businesses and organizations to solve a current problem or leverage the Internet to expand business opportunities. These are large projects that provide students with practical project management and development experience. Each team commits a total of 950 to 1200 hours developing and managing their project.

Students develop skills in Internet technology and software development while also learning the aesthetics of Web media and the business considerations of electronic commerce. Graduates of the Master of IT Program are capable of working and advancing in the rapidly growing fields of e-business and Internet development as designers, software developers, and managers.
