The ITS Program was designed in cooperation with the GartnerGroup of Stamford, one of the world's leading information technology authorities. Together, NCC and GartnerGroup designed a program that could equip students with the real-world skills needed for immediate employment as well as for transfer to a four-year institution for those desiring a bachelor's degree. The skills acquired by students in this program are based upon the demands of businesses active in the field while simultaneously meeting many of the requirements of four-year schools (for transfer credit).
Information technology is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. And Connecticut is one of the hottest states in the union in the field. Demand for skilled workers far outpaces supply, and this creates tremendous opportunities for students graduating from any of the various Information Technology programs at NCC. The Information Technology Sales Program (ITS) trains students for entry level jobs in sales, marketing, customer service, administration and management.
NCC has forged strong working relationships with other area information technology companies, and this has created numerous partnerships. Internships with local businesses and industries give ITS students the opportunity to gain experience while they finish accumulating credits for an associate degree or certification.
