Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Enterprise IT Management

Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Enterprise IT Management Two-Year Diploma Program?

The impact of enterprise systems—a single large-scale technology solution that supports the key business processes, information flows, and data reporting of an entire organization—on the competitiveness of today’s technology intensive organizations is significant. Enterprise systems allow organizations to adopt industry best practices, better understand and link with their suppliers and customers, and derive increased value from their significant volume of data. In addition to meeting the most basic information needs of organizations, enterprise systems also help improve competitiveness through the inclusion of business intelligence, knowledge management, customer relationship management, supply chain management, and product life cycle management capabilities. Developing and managing enterprise systems solutions not only require detailed technical knowledge, but also an understanding of business process redesign, project management, and change management.

The Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Enterprise IT Management at StFX is a two-year diploma program focused on designing, deploying and managing enterprise systems solutions in organizations. The diploma program will utilize the latest and most popular enterprise systems solutions and tools. Students will gain hands-on experience with the most popular tools related to enterprise system design, use, and management (e.g., SAP ERP), project management, systems analysis and design, business intelligence and analytics, technology implementation, enterprise systems customization (e.g., ABAP language), and mobile commerce. Students will have the option to gain practical work experience through a co-op work term. Upon graduation, students will possess the knowledge and skills to become an entry-level enterprise systems consultant, IT consultant, systems analyst and eventually a project manager or IT manager.


The Program

The Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Enterprise IT Management is designed for students who have completed an undergraduate degree in any discipline from a recognized university. No previous background or courses in business or IT is needed. This program will be of interest to students who would like to:

  • Expand their knowledge into a discipline outside of their first degree.
  • Change the direction of their first degree into new areas for career reasons.
  • Update their degree with the latest technology used by organizations.
  • Become an enterprise systems consultant, IT consultant, or systems analyst.

Students will receive a strong foundation in IT, enterprise systems, and business early in the program. As part of this foundation and continuing throughout the program, students will apply concepts using leading business and enterprise systems software and tools. Students in the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Enterprise IT Management will receive hands-on experience on SAP ERP, SAP S/4HANA, SAP Lumira, ABAP, and various database, project management, and systems analysis tools. Upper level courses will focus on the core concepts, tools, and skills needed to successfully design, implement, and manage enterprise systems solutions. Students who select the co-op option will complete seminars on workplace readiness, before starting a four-month co-op IT-related work placement.


Co-op Option

Co-op students complete four months of paid work experience (summer between first and second year) in appropriate fields of business, industry, government, and non-profits and also integrate work experience in their field of interest within their academic studies. Students complete professional development seminars and workshops offered through the Co-op department prior to starting their work term placement.
