The Information Technology (IT) Industry Leader entry route is directed specifically for senior IT professionals who hold a non-IT university degree, but possess the required experience to practice in the field. Individuals who are interested in this entry route must have a level of professional competence above the minimum requirements and hold a senior executive level position in a large firm (e.g. Chief Information Officer - CIO, Chief Technology Officer - CTO). The review and assessment methodology is based on a defined career path and is based on the single standard, the CIPS Body of Knowledge (BOK) to which all entry routes must adhere and be validated against.
Applicants who have an IT relevant college or university education should apply under the Education Plus Experience route.
Note: Successful completion of the CIPS Ethics Exam is now required for applicants who have not graduated from a CIPS accredited program. First complete the exam, print off your certificate and attach it to your completed application.
