About the Master in IT Management

The Master in IT Management is a research-based post-graduate programme that provides the skills necessary to be a competent manager in IT.

The programme is designed for IT project managers, managers of an IT department or for those wishing to become managers, digitalisation managers, IT consultants or IT advisors. It is for employees in both the private and public sector.

With a Master in IT Management, you gain the skills necessary to be a competent IT manager. You will be introduced to the latest research-based knowledge in the field, and you will learn how to create value with IT as a manager. This way, theories and methods are linked to the managerial challenges faced on an every-day basis.

The programme deals with the problems, challenges and opportunities that arise when IT and increased digitalisation have to interact with operations, development and innovation.

The starting point for the programme is the individual student; through individual sparring on management, the focus is on building, developing and supplementing your management competencies.

The programme structure also ensures that you establish a professional network with the other participants during the course of the programme.
