Careers

Career outlook

As an expert in business and IT, you can find a position that is at the interface between concept, design, implementation and maintenance of technical topics. From start-ups to large international companies, you will ensure that all IT systems run efficiently and reliably, and that all information is transferred securely. You may even use your business and technical expertise to start your own project as an entrepreneur.

IT Project Manager

As an IT Project Manager, you are responsible for managing IT projects and are always up-to-date on the latest developments. You are able to use your specialist knowledge to intervene if needed. You will determine project processes for IT and create guidelines and policies that ensure project success. You will also need to take into account the needs of the company and create documentation during the project. Consulting with specialist departments and project managers is also part of your job.

Software Developer

As a software developer, you will develop and implement software, from single building blocks to complete applications. In coordination with users from various departments, you will programme solutions that are tailored to the respective needs and requirements. In doing so, you will also keep the economic conditions in mind at all times and ensure compliance.

Business Analyst

As a business analyst, you will examine business processes and take care of requirements management. This means that you will identify, analyse, prioritise and formulate the requirements for processes and IT systems. In doing so, you will have an excellent eye for identifying challenges and risks, as well as new opportunities. You will coordinate with the IT department regarding implementation while also considering cost-efficient product solutions that match the business strategy. You will ensure that all participants work together efficiently until implementation.
