Information Technology Management and Leadership Executive (ITMLE)

The ITMLE Certification Bootcamp is ideal for seasoned IT Managers and IT Directors (Managers of Managers) wanting to enhance their current job performance, position them for promotion, accelerate their upward mobility and get a seat at the business strategy/decision making table.
