International Master in Management of Information Technology
This program requires proficiency in English.
The International Master’s in Management of IT (IMMIT) programme prepares students to act as intermediaries between business users and Information Technology specialists in an international environment, and thus become “hybrid” managers at the interface between InformationTechnology and Business functions.
IMMIT consists of integrative skills and knowledge needed for effective use of Information Technology to support international business operations and management.
