Digital Enterprise Management, HBA


Honours Bachelor of Arts, Institute of Communication, Culture and Information Technology (ICCIT), University of Toronto Mississauga


Prepare for management roles in the digital age by developing a working knowledge of emerging technologies. Digital Enterprise Management (DEM) is a Specialist Program offered through Communications, Culture and Information Technology. Studies in DEM focus on the technologies comprising the Internet and the Web, which are transforming existing companies and providing fertile ground for the creation of new digital enterprises. Experts agree that such enterprises must be managed in fundamentally different ways from their industrial age precursors. This program explores this new managerial environment. Students will gain an understanding of the technologies that underlie digital businesses and the managerial challenges and techniques appropriate for being active and valuable participants in digital enterprises.

The DEM program meets all the learning requirments for the Canadian Coalition for Tomorrow’s ICT Skills (CCICT)’s  Business Technology Management (BTM) program.

Communication, Culture and Information Technology (CCIT) consists of interdisciplinary programs offered jointly by U of T Mississauga, Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and the U of T Faculty of Information.

Upon completion of the first year of studies at U of T Mississauga, CCIT students take courses at U of T Mississauga and either U of T St. George or Sheridan (Oakville Campus), depending upon the program in which they are enrolled. CCIT programs combine academic courses in the arts and sciences with hands-on applied courses in digital media and technology. The focus of the CCIT program is on the generation, diffusion, and social impact of new technologies, and how media and technologies interact with commerce, culture and communication. In addition to receiving an honours degree from the University of Toronto, CCIT students who successfully complete CCIT Major or DEM Specialist programs have the opportunity to obtain a Certificate in Digital Communications from the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning.
