Information technology (IT) is all around us, forming the very destiny of our lives… our world. IT advances a wide array of disciplines, such as engineering, business and medicine, and even art and archaeology.

The Master of Information Technology (MIT) provides the knowledge, understanding and skills to solve real-world problems with cutting-edge technology. You learn to create innovative IT solutions in your chosen area, in order to work in the industry at the highest levels.

As an MIT graduate, you could become a software engineer, an enterprise data architect, a mobile systems analyst, or even a chief technology officer.

The MIT caters to students from a variety of backgrounds. If you do not have previous training in IT, the course includes preparatory units that will give you the IT knowledge needed for the remainder of the course. However, if you already have a degree in IT, you can accelerate your study with an exemption from these preparatory units, or perhaps study further elective units in areas of your choice.

The course offers you the opportunity to explore a wide range of areas, such as software engineering, mobile and distributed systems, project management and machine learning.

In your final semester, you may take part in an Industry Experience program, working in a small team with industry mentors to develop entrepreneurial IT solutions. Or you may undertake a minor-thesis research project, investigating cutting-edge problems in IT under the supervision of internationally recognised researchers.

High-achieving students who complete the research component may progress to further research study.

The MIT is accredited with the Australian Computer Society (ACS).

Course structure

PART A. Foundations for advanced information technology studies

These studies will provide an orientation to the field of information technology at graduate level. They are intended for students whose previous qualification is not in a cognate field.

PART B. Core Master's study

These studies draw on best practices within the broad realm of IT application, theory and practice. You will gain an understanding of information technology real world IT problems and gain problem solving skills. Your study will focus on IT project management, software, network and systems areas.

PART C. Advanced practice

The focus of these studies is professional or scholarly work that can contribute to a portfolio of professional development. You have two options.

The first option is a minor thesis research program, consisting of a research project and a research methods training unit. Students wishing to use this Masters course as a pathway to a higher degree by research should take this first option.

The second option is a program of coursework involving advanced study and an Industry experience studio project.

Students admitted to the course, who have a recognised honours degree in a discipline cognate to information technology, will receive credit for PART C, however, should they wish to complete a 24 point research project as part of the course they should consult with the course coordinator.

Schumpeter for the 21st century

Conducting business in an entrepreneurial way and having the capacity for innovation are the most important competitive factors in many business sectors today. To this end, the Austrian-born economist, Joseph Schumpeter, created the term "creative destruction": The stronger incessantly pushes the weaker. The existing economic structure is altered through innovation. Companies failing to rise to this challenge disappear from the market place. However, anyone determining the rules of the game as an innovator, not only generates wealth and social benefits, but may also achieve a temporary monopoly profit.

Innovations are not just the rare, trailblazing "break-throughs". Value is alos generated from companies by creative product improvements, altered processes, new markets and more intelligent organizational syltes. Entrepreneurial opportunities are constantly arising in technologies and markets, and many ideas are just waiting for their commercial implementation. The ability to make use of them will become a key qualification for executives and managers. It is particularly at the interface between economics and technology that there lies a great deal of unexplored potential.

The Program

The Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation provides the appropriate skills and techniques, and thereby teaches entrepreneurial thinking and acting. The lecturers are internationally renowned experts. The organizers, the TU Wien and the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), represent the link between technological excellence and business competence. This Professional MBA is an important step in the transfer of cutting-edge knowledge and management skills at the highest international level.

In this program, innovation is understood as the process through which knowledge and creativity lead to product or service changes. Entrepreneurship is then the process through which knowledge and creativity generate new ways of delivering these products and services, either through a new organization or through reformation of an existing enterprise.

Contents

The Professional MBA Program comprises of general economic science modules and specialist in-depth modules. The basic modules of economic science raise all of the participants to a common level of sound, fundamental economic knowledge and serve as quality assurance for knowledge that has already been acquired.

  • Managing People and Organizations
  • Strategy and Innovation
  • Managerial Economics and Decision Analysis
  • Accounting and Finance
  • Marketing and Markets
  • Operations and IT
  • Leadership and Ethics

In the second year, the professional specialization and immersion in the subject matter take place. The final part of the MBA Program serves for the consolidation and integration of what has been learned, as well as the writing of a practically-orientated Master's Thesis.

  • Sources of Innovation
  • Strategy of Innovation
  • Marketing of Innovation
  • Organization of Innovation
  • Financing and Controlling of Innovation
  • Entrepreneurial Leadership
  • Master's Thesis

For further information on the contents on the general as well as specialization modules, please visit https://www.tu-wu-innovation.at/program/curriculum/

Field study

To provide the participants with some special insights into the Amercian way of doing business and pushing innovation, a field trip to the Boston area is also an essential part of this MBA program. The schedule will include lectures at the MIT Sloan School of Management and the Harvard Business School as well as meetings with venture capitalists, business angels, founders of start-ups and much more. For futher information on the field trips, please visit https://www.tu-wu-innovation.at/program/field_study/

Target Group

The Professional MBA Program is aiming mainly at people operating at the gateway between technology and economy and those who want to operate in this area in the future:

  • Employees of companies or self-employed that have placed or tend to place themselves as innovation leaders
  • Engineers, Natural Scientists and Economists working in the fields of product marketing and product controlling with leadership experience
  • Employees who have made the first steps in their career and want to be prepared to take over an interdisciplinary, innovation oriented management position

This program provides rigorous training in the economics of international finance, trade, and development for students interested in demanding professional careers and doctoral programs.

Program description

What can be done to avoid financial crises? How can growth in the least developed countries be accelerated? How can wealth be distributed equitably and sustainably? This program will allow students to acquire a thorough knowledge of the conceptual and empirical tools of modern Economics applied to international trade, finance, and development.

Tailor your program to fit your interests and goals

The program starts in the first term with a set of courses on economic growth and development, international trade and finance, and quantitative methods. In the second and third terms, students can choose from a wide array of courses and tailor their learning experience to their interests. Some students chose to specialize in development, others in international trade and finance, while others opt instead for a more balanced approach that combines training in both areas.

Students complete an independent study project by the end of the academic year, allowing them to specialize in a policy topic of their choice. They also attend a series of policy lessons delivered by international experts.

Study with experts from academia and international organizations

The master's faculty consists of internationally renowned scholars who have previously held academic positions at MIT, NYU, Chicago, Berkeley, Stanford and Cambridge. They have also worked or held consulting appointments at international organizations, including the World Bank, the IMF, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the European Central Bank.

Degree

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Master Degree in Specialized Economic Analysis awarded jointly with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The degree requires the successful completion of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits of graduate courses (6 credits are equivalent to a 40 hour course), some compulsory and some elective. The students' final program must be discussed with and approved by the Master Director.

HEC Paris’ Master in Management (MiM) is the international students’ gateway to the prestigious Grande Ecole program, created in 1881, and a fantastic world of opportunities.

World-class Student Body

The Grande Ecole program is designed for high potential students from all backgrounds with little or no professional experience, driven to become influential leaders in tomorrow’s world.

A Unique Two-Phase Curriculum to Boost Your Career

The Grande Ecole curriculum is divided into a generalist phase and a specialization phase. The first phase concentrates on business fundamentals while the second one focuses on acquiring expertise around the professional goals of the student. The nature of the specialization determines the Master’s degree that the student will finally receive: Management, Management & Business Law, Management and Public Affairs…

This unique curriculum structure enables students to acquire both an excellent grounding in general management and an expertise in a specific field. We firmly believe this combination is the key success factor in training future leaders and making a lasting impact on the careers of our students. In fact, our graduates combine the rare ability to grasp the ‘global picture’ in all situations and a deep understanding that only experts can truly reach.

The program consists of:

  • M1: mandatory foundation courses in general management, electives and a managerial behavior seminarin
  • M2: a specialization, an optional certificate and an in-depth research paper.

Moreover, the Grande Ecole program, created in 1881, perfectly balances the development of practical leadership and professional skills with the more theoretical requirements, such as a final research paper within the specialization. Students are trained to become decision-makers while focusing on the academic specialization that they choose in light of their professional goals. With the diversity of courses and specializations available, students can develop expertise in several areas of business administration, shape their career plans, all while preparing their entry into the business world through company internships.

A Wide Range of Specialisations

In M2, students have access to a wide range of specializations, which then determine the Master’s degree that the student will finally receive:

  • Master in Management: Strategy, Finance, Marketing, Financial Economics, Economics, Entrepreneurship, etc.Master in Public Affairs: Public Policy, International Relations, DiplomacyMaster in Business LawMaster in Sustainability and Social InnovationMaster in Journalism (taught in French only)Master in Media, Arts & Creation (taught in French only)Master in Cognitive Sciences (with ENS Ulm)
