An IT degree program may include coursework in database systems, data management, Web development, programming, operating systems, technology architecture and systems analysis.

You can also earn a bachelor's degree in another discipline, such as engineering, marketing, finance or information technology, and then apply that academic background to graduate-level study in business management or project management.

This resource manages the requirements development process through the elicitation, analysis, specification and verification of multiple levels of requirements from an end-to-end perspective and supports the ongoing management of the requirements.
