Why this programme?

Effective information management is at the heart of every organisation’s performance, yet individuals with a thorough understanding of the value of information to international business are scarce and in high demand. From the programme’s introductory week in a dynamic European city to its conclusion in the writing of your master thesis, you will embark on an intense and inspiring learning experience:

  • Learn how to analyse the strategic potential of information and its application to business and corporate networks;
  • develop knowledge in managing the implementation of business applications and how change management is crucial in the implementation process;
  • develop consultancy and project management skills;
  • acquire an understanding of the pivotal management decision processes faced by business managers.

The programme focuses on the process of managing information as a strategic resource for improving overall business performance, with an emphasis on the potential for innovative information technologies.

By the time you graduate, you will have developed an in-depth understanding of the issues surrounding business information management in an international context; the ability to think critically and creatively about these business processes and importantly, the personal skills to effectively apply tools and theories in practice and therefore bring about results as a future manager.
