M.Sc. In Management Of Information Technology

Program Aims

In this new so-called “information age”, information has become a resource, a tool and also one of the major risks in any organisation. Therefore the management of information becomes everyone's business in an organisation. It affects how well an organisation communicates with its clients, how secure data is, and whether the organisation has an effective way to measure its performance and meet its goals. This program is designed to produce graduates who will become the key people responsible for oversight and monitoring of this key cog in the gears of any organisation and serve as the bridge between generators and users of data and, in particular, to support the use and interpretation of data by Management.
