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.
