MS in Telecommunications and Network Management

Real network managers don’t just connect the enterprise, they shape it.

The iSchool at SU graduate program in Telecommunications and Network Management (TNM) goes far beyond a typical IT degree.  It has evolved into the premier Telecommunications and Network Management program within the United States.  The Telecommunications and Network Management degree is a marriage of technology, policy and management. It is not an engineering or programming degree, but gives IT professionals and new industry entrants a broader view of how to apply and use networking technologies to solve business problems.
