Program Description

This one-year Master programme in Information Management offers non-technical training in information management, with an emphasis on the efficient and effective application and management of information technology in a business context.

Following basic technology training, the programme explores specific management issues in greater depth, particularly in order to develop the skills required to analyse information needs, to design and manage information systems, and to fine-tune an IT strategy as an integral part of overall business strategy.

This approach highlights the preliminary work involved in the development of an information system. In completing your Master's thesis, you can apply these skills within a specific business context. Finally, a wide range of electives enables you to either explore specific areas of Information Management in greater depth or gain a broader understanding through a multidisciplinary approach.
