120 Credits | 2 years | Start date: Autumn 2016 | Degree of Master of Science (120 credits) with a major in Informatics
This programme provides knowledge and skills in three key areas: project management, the use of IT in business, organisational and technological innovation, and the evaluation of IT in organisations.
The programme targets students with a bachelor degree in informatics/information systems, business administration or computer science.
During the first semester, courses focus on project management and how to manage and evaluate information technology innovations. During this semester, students perform a real-life project in groups. The second semester provides deep theoretical knowledge and tools required for managing and analysing information technology and information systems. The research methods course during the second semester gives students knowledge of state-of-the-art research and the analytical skills to independently perform scientific work.
All courses are given in English. The programme is open to students from around the world, and courses have a diverse international participation of students. This international atmosphere contributes to a broad perspective of the issues discussed in class.
Part of the elective semester can be devoted to an internship.
Students have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our many partner universities. The alternative to international exchange is to study elective courses at JIBS. Both alternatives allows you to create your own individualized profile.
