More about the programme

Hear from our current students

BIM sits at the intersection of business and IT. Our courses are versatile in content, and I really like that everything we learn has a connection to the real business world and relevance. From the start, we’ve had CEOs of major companies as guest lecturers, and we cover a great variety of topics that are useful whether you want to be a strategy consultant or a data analyst. My favourites so far are technical courses such as Big Data and Management Analytics, as we get to do predictive modelling and analysis. You can make it as technical or theoretical as you would like, while also being research-intensive, through the master thesis. The study experience is coupled with numerous networking events throughout the academic year, preparing you for your future job, and helping you decide what you want to do.
