The Masters in Management Information Systems (MIS) program is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the role of information systems in modern organizations. The program covers topics such as database management, Technical foundations of Business Information Systems, Data Mining and Knowledge Acquisition, project management, and Innovation and Knowledge Management. Students will develop the technical skills needed to manage complex information systems and the business knowledge required to understand how these systems can be used to support organizational goals. Graduates of the program will be well-equipped to pursue careers in a variety of industries, including technology, finance, healthcare, and government.
The non-thesis MIS Masters program consists of at least ten courses with a total of 30 credits and not less than 90 ECTS, and a term project course.
