Data collection and analysis, together with efficient business processes, offer a key to success in modern business. Managing a company without using information and information communication technology (ICT) is unthinkable today. Thanks to your background in Business Informatics, Business Administration or Information Technology you are already familiar with the problems of operational processes. You may already be working in a company on optimizing operations through appropriate information and communication systems.

Are you ready to take another step in your career? Your goal may be to plan, implement, manage and control complex ICT projects that achieve strategic business objectives – in other words, to lead. You want to be able to assess the effects of a specific informatics strategy on a company's success and predict how it can contribute to the strategic development of a business. And you want to know why strategic information management requires a holistic and inclusive approach that goes beyond simply “maintaining a competitive edge”.

Companies demand a lot from ICT. Resources have to be managed effectively and efficiently. The challenges are complex, not least because many business processes are now handled either partially or completely through ICT. We will prepare you thoroughly for these challenges.
