Thinking about getting your MBA and your CIPS ITCP designation?

CIPS recently approved an entry route to the Information Technology Certified Professional (ITCP) designation for those ICT practitioners who have successfully completed the Australian Computer Society online Computer Professional Education Program (CPE Program).

CPEP is a postgraduate level ICT program with a strong focus on ICT and business alignment. The CPE Program consists of three core subjects, one elective and a Professional Practice component, allowing you to further develop your understanding in an area of interest to you. The course is offered online with a dedicated online learning platform that provides you with the flexibility to study at a time and place that suits you.  You’ll work closely with fellow students in a highly interactive virtual classroom, sharing experiences and knowledge all under the guidance of your subject tutor and, unique to the CPE Program, your own personal mentor.

Your studies will earn you credits towards leading graduate diploma and masters programs in Australia and you will qualify to apply for the ITCP designation.  Holding the ITCP qualifies you for the Athabasca University's Master of Science in Information Systems Program and the Executive MBA program, and the University of Fredericton on-line Executive Master for Business Administration Degree (EMBA).

There are three 13-week study periods each calendar year: 

·         January to April

·         May to August

·         September to December

The next study period is starting in May and a webinar information session has been scheduled for Monday April 8 at 9:00 p.m. EDT. To register for the webinar click here

CIPS has negotiated a special fee for CIPS members. Fees are $675 (per subject – normally $1,500).

For more information on the CPE Program or to register contact Gina van Dalen at or 905 602 1370 ext. 2329.
