Information Technology Management and Leadership Executive (ITMLE)


IT executives must be more than just technical. They must have well developed people-skills, a broad business view, solid business acumen, superior communication, strong management capabilities, and exceptional leadership capacity. The IT Management and Leadership Executive (ITMLE) certification is designed to help current and would-be IT senior managers meet these business challenges.

The ITMLE is a rigorous, down-to-earth, and practical certification program that provides a well-balanced foundation needed to bring superior competitive IT advantage to their company.

Developed by an experienced CIO, and then vetted by a board of senior industry executives, the ITMLE certifies that those who successfully complete the Final Exam bring credible and validated industry knowledge to the organizations they serve appropriate to a senior-level IT executive.
