Short Description

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.

Programme Curriculum

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. The student has to register for the term project at the end of the second semester at the latest. Students must register for the term project course in the semester in which the term project course is taken and submit a written project and/or report at the end of the semester. The term project course is non-credit and is evaluated as successful or unsuccessful.

The duration to complete the non-thesis MIS Masters program is at least three semesters, at most four semesters, regardless of whether or not they are registered for each semester, starting from the semester in which the courses related to the program they are enrolled in, excluding the time spent in scientific preparation. At the end of this period, the student who fails or cannot complete the program is dismissed from the higher education institution.

The Masters in Management Information Systems program can be completed within one and half

years of full-time study. Students must successfully complete one University core course (Scientific Research Methods and Publication Ethics), one Departmental core course (Technical Foundations of Business Information Systems) and two electives in the first semester. Upon completing this semester, they will be required to take four additional courses, including a seminar, one departmental core course (Managing Change in Organizations) and two electives. In the third semester, they will be required to prepare a Term Project, and complete two elective courses. Upon successful completion and defenses of the Term Project, they will be considered to have graduated from this program.
