MSc in Economics and Business Administration - Information Management
Multidisciplinary study at the interface of it and business
Today’s organisations rely heavily on information technologies (IT) to meet their business needs. The MSc in Information Management prepares you for a career at the interface of IT and business. You will gain the expertise to translate strategic and operational needs into better systems with improved performance, enabling you to play a key role in modern organisations and businesses.
Working with information and IT requires the ability to perform multidisciplinary functions. The Information Management programme will prepare you for this by offering close dialogue and contact between students and teachers and by integrating project work and cooperation as tools in your learning process.
IT and business competencies
By the end of the programme you will be able to: participate creatively in the management of information resources and information technology; utilise IT to make businesses as well as their services and products more attractive and competitive; create and manage new IT systems that support business goals and strategies that are frequently international in scope; and participate in strategic planning, formulating requirements for new IT systems and implementing them within businesses and organisations.
This MSc programme is not just for students with bachelor’s degrees with IT elements. It is relevant for all students with a bachelor’s degree within the field of economics and business administration who wish to combine IT and business studies.
Social and academic activities
Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars and celebrations, so there is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.
The MSc in Information Management offers great career prospects for becoming an IT manager, project manager or ERP consultant (e.g. SAP). The international character of the programmes prepares graduates to work in international organisations.
“I chose the MSc in Information Management because I wanted to help businesses incorporate IT as much as possible into their daily work so as to gain a competitive advantage. I was driven by the fact that IT can support almost all work processes, so if you use it right you can end up being the best company within your industry. In my current position I have overall responsibility for the ERP programme at GN ReSound, a programme where the main purpose is to implement an IT landscape that can support our global processes and at the same time give us the flexibility needed to adapt.”
