Master in IT, Management and Innovation

Jönköping University

This programme provides knowledge and skills in three key areas: project management, the use of IT in business, organisational and technological innovation, and the evaluation of IT in organisations.

The programme targets students with a bachelor degree in informatics/informa­tion systems, business administration or computer science.

During the first semester, courses focus on project management and how to manage and evaluate information tech­nology innovations. During this semester, students perform a real-life project in groups. The second semester provides deep theoretical knowledge and tools required for managing and analysing information technology and information systems. The research methods cour­se during the second semester gives students knowledge of state-of-the-art research and the analytical skills to inde­pendently perform scientific work.

All courses are given in English. The programme is open to students from around the world, and courses have a diverse international participation of students. This international atmosphere contributes to a broad perspective of the issues discussed in class.

Internship

Part of the elective semester can be devoted to an internship.

Study abroad

Students have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our many partner universities. The alternative to international exchange is to study elective courses at JIBS. Both alternatives allows you to create your own individualized profile.

After graduation

After successfully completing the programme, students will have acquired good analytical skills and the ability to think strategically in terms of both business and technology and be qualified to work in local or international companies as IT managers, chief information officers or as a researcher.

The programme also prepares students for doctoral studies.
