IT Management

{{'ShareCounter_Share_Label' | i18n}}:

Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.

Bill Gates Microsoft

The main challenge for every Information Technology (IT) organization is not only to meet the demand of the user community with services of the expected quality at the expected price but also to add value to organisations by effective implementation of new technologies. The world of IT is ever changing, driven by new technologies that create these new business opportunities. On the other hand the business is also changing rapidly, adjusting to stay in the market and responding to clients' needs and wishes. IT Management is right in the middle of this turbulent work field.

Managing IT is a great challenge. Many companies have a love-hate relationship with their internal IT departments and external IT suppliers. Users and IT specialists often appear to live in different worlds and speak different languages.  Whereas users complain about IT, IT specialists maintain that users show a tendency to dig their heels in. This is one of the big challenges in the world of IT. In our programme we focus on how to deliver the right services at the right price and quality, in a continuously changing customer world. This is where technology and organisations meet.

What you will learn

  • What makes an organization tick;
  • What are the different options available to organisations for fulfilling their IT requirements;
  • Which methodologies are available for effective management and control of the IT function;
  • With which challenges are large and small organisations wrestling in order to achieve an effective and efficient application of Information Technology;
  • To further develop your written and verbal skills in the English language;
  • To work effectively in teams in a multicultural setting.

Outcome

The programme provides you with insight, knowledge, skills and experience to work more effectively within an IT environment, whether in a technical, organizational, consultancy or management role. Leading standards and theory form a frame of reference. The associated learning tasks will help you put theory into practice and achieve the required competencies. Thanks to the large number of external organization which participate in this programme the knowledge gained will not only be theoretical but also very practical. You will also be able to give advice on organisational change and sourcing, based on financial arguments, while focusing on connecting IT functionality to business requirements.

Programme

The programme is integrated: you learn the theory in lectures. This knowledge is applied and further mastered in assignments partly carried out on actual business locations. The study assignments are conducted in international project groups with the aid of real cases from the industry. Teamwork in international/multicultural groups is an important skill for working successfully in IT management and is given substantial focus. Team results are presented and discussed with your fellow students, Business professionals and lecturers. (Business) management consultancy is also a key skill for professionals in this industry and is included in the programme.
