Start your online Master in Information and Technology Management

This unique study programme will give you all the tools necessary for becoming an information technology master. Learn how to be the contact person and leader of IT system instalment and development.

Help teams and companies adopt innovative digital business tools and operations, and combine strong information technology knowledge with wider business insights and people management skills. Unlike an IT master programme, this degree focuses on giving you the tools to mediate between bigger picture business planning and the more technical aspects of owning an IT infrastructure.

The Information Technology MA programme is offered as either a 120 ECTS degree, for students with a BA in Business Administration or Economics; or as a 60 ECTS degree, for students of all backgrounds who already have professional experience of working in IT.

Have you already completed a training course, studied at a university or gained work experience? At IU International University of Applied Sciences you have the opportunity to get your previous achievements recognised, completely free of charge. By doing so, you can save valuable time and reduce tuition fees.
