SoPA and Tulane University are excited to announce the transition back to campus for the fall semester. While we encourage students to continue to meet with advisors, faculty and staff remotely, our offices will be open for limited in-person visits. Beginning Monday August 3, Elmwood offices are open 8:30A.M.– 5:00P.M. Gibson Hall offices will remain closed as Tulane renovates new space for SoPA on the Uptown campus. All faculty and staff are working and available.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the SoPA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Return to Campus page for updates.

Earn a Graduate Certificate in IT Strategic Planning at Tulane SoPA

SoPA’s 100% online graduate certificate in IT Strategic Planning allows you to gain specialized knowledge of IT leadership and governance. It is designed for students who already know the fundamentals of information technology or cybersecurity and want to grow their leadership skills in order to drive the strategic direction of IT departments. It will help qualify you for employment in IT strategic planning, IT business consulting, and IT governance and policy. All credits earned pursuing this graduate-level “stackable” certificate may be applied toward SoPA’s Master of Professional Studies in Information Technology Management. To earn an MPS in Information Technology Management, students complete course work in two graduate IT certificate programs, plus two additional required core courses, for a total of 10 courses. If you would like to pursue an MPS degree and apply your certificate towards the degree completion, please contact the Program Director for next steps. The process is simple and can be completed without reapplying.
