From CIO Careers: "Earning the influence to secure a seat at the leadership table and to be listened to requires people skills, seeing greys, emotional intelligence, and non-linear thinking. There isn't a graduate program… that even hints to these skills and how critical they are." Until now.
Through coaching, mentoring, leadership development, and curriculum developed and delivered by and for IT Leaders, VCU's FTEMS program helps students foster the skills required to influence peers and executives. In addition, students build a network of high powered IT professionals and leaders. All in just over one year, without taking time off from their careers.
