Overview

Start your online Master in Information and Technology Management

This unique study programme will give you all the tools necessary for becoming an information technology master. Learn how to be the contact person and leader of IT system instalment and development.

Help teams and companies adopt innovative digital business tools and operations, and combine strong information technology knowledge with wider business insights and people management skills. Unlike an IT master programme, this degree focuses on giving you the tools to mediate between bigger picture business planning and the more technical aspects of owning an IT infrastructure.

The Information Technology MA programme is offered as either a 120 ECTS degree, for students with a BA in Business Administration or Economics; or as a 60 ECTS degree, for students of all backgrounds who already have professional experience of working in IT.

Have you already completed a training course, studied at a university or gained work experience? At IU International University of Applied Sciences you have the opportunity to get your previous achievements recognised, completely free of charge. By doing so, you can save valuable time and reduce tuition fees.

Study contents

Course overview

Over the course of this Master in Management of Technology, you will explore the different aspects required for setting up an IT system. You’ll start by familiarising yourself with the foundations of IT: hardware, software and distributed systems.

You’ll then dive into topics such as IT law, IT service management and IT project management. The focus will then turn to managerial aspects: leadership and analysis skills, along with an introduction to the different approaches of assessing and preventing potential cyber threats.

Round out your expertise by exploring agile project management, and choosing from a wide variety of specialisations that best suit your interests and goals, from Blockchain and Quantum Computing to project management with Scrum to Artificial Intelligence.

Student reviews

This is what our students say

  • I chose IU because it is the most flexible of all the online universities I looked at.

    Marie Arnold

    Online student

  • I wanted a career change but still be able to apply the knowledge I've gained to my work.

    Anne-Kathrin Gansebohm

    Online student

  • To enhance my practical experience, a degree in business information systems seemed to me to be very useful and sensible. This is how I discovered IU International University of Applied Sciences. My degree at IU gave me a comprehensive overview of the business administration side of things. Companies are looking for people with a degree and professional experience - with online learning, you get both!
