Information is the most important asset for companies. But who decides which information is valuable? How do you get the most out of the information? And which technologies can be used effectively? Specialists in IT management answer these kinds of questions.
During your studies, you will work on the development and management of IT infrastructure, creating concepts for international project management and the implementation of IT services for internal stakeholders and customers. You also learn the basics of software engineering and deepen your knowledge of IT compliance and data protection requirements.
