Telecommunications is no longer limited to the transmission of voices over copper wire. The modern
telecommunications professional must be well-versed in a variety of wired and wireless technologies, armed with substantial knowledge of current management practices, and fully informed on the current state of convergence in telephony, computer systems, global positioning systems, and the Internet. The MITSOT’s program has been designed for the experienced telecommunication technical professional, the seasoned manager and fresh graduates with relatively little experience in the telecom industry. The program offers a systematic approach to understanding the globalization of information technologies and the convergence of electronic media and telecommunications with the Internet by including history, technology, policy, economics, industrial structures, and e-commerce issues in the curriculum.
