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.

Internship
