Focus, educational goals

Bachelor degree programs produce highly educated IT and computer specialists, but experts with in-depth knowledge of information systems are sought-after and scarce resource. The aim of this Master's program is to fill the gap by providing the necessary education.

This Master's program is for those who have a bachelor's degree in Information Systems; for those who have a bachelor's degree in some related fields (informatics, computer science, software engineering) and have some experience in the field of information systems; and for those wishing to enter in the field of information systems, but have no prior knowledge of information systems. These three streams of students, after completing the program, find their way into the numerous positions for professionals in the information systems offered by the business and the public sector.

The program can be customized taking into account the students' preliminary knowledge and educational goals.
