You probably get the following warning or similar:
LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape OT1/cmss/bx/sl' undefined
(Font)              using OT1/cmss/bx/n' instead on input line 5.

The reason you can't get italic in the title is that this document
class uses bold sanserif for the title and, given the default CM
fonts, here is no bold slanted san serif. If you change to a font
family that contains such a font, it should work.

If you include

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

that might be enough to get it to work (can't be sure, you didn't
supply a self-contained example file.

Cheers,
Dan
