Course objectives

The MSc in Information Systems provides a balanced programme of formal engineering and managerial methods, techniques, and approaches. The programme is fuelled by ongoing research at ERCIS (European Research Center for Information Systems) and prepares students for research positions in industry or academia as well as for managerial and consulting positions.
