This programme provides knowledge and skills in three key areas: project management, the use of IT in business, organisational and technological innovation, and the evaluation of IT in organisations.
The programme targets students with a bachelor degree in informatics/information systems, business administration or computer science.
During the first semester, courses focus on project management and how to manage and evaluate information technology innovations. During this semester, students perform a real-life project in groups. The second semester provides deep theoretical knowledge and tools required for managing and analysing information technology and information systems. The research methods course during the second semester gives students knowledge of state-of-the-art research and the analytical skills to independently perform scientific work.
All courses are given in English. The programme is open to students from around the world, and courses have a diverse international participation of students. This international atmosphere contributes to a broad perspective of the issues discussed in class.
Part of the elective semester can be devoted to an internship.
Students have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our many partner universities. The alternative to international exchange is to study elective courses at JIBS. Both alternatives allows you to create your own individualized profile.
2 years, 120 credits. Master of Science with a major in Informatics.
Graduates will have acquired good analytical skills and the ability to think strategically in terms of both business and technology. Career opportunities after completing the programme are, for example, project manager, chief information officer, change manager and IT consultant.
The programme also prepares students for doctoral studies.

Meet Mantautas Neniskis from Lithuania
Student in IT, Management and Innovation
"I’m interested in creating something from scratch and have always wanted a job where I can develop websites and mobile applications. My education at Jönköping University has, in many ways, helped me get closer to this dream. I have learned how to manage projects, how to work in international groups, how to approach problems, and I can easily say that I’ve gained the knowledge I came for.
Studying here is quite different from what I’m used to. All my courses include group work and since the groups are very international I have really improved my skills in adapting to other students.
Rather than studying abroad at one of the school’s partner universities, I chose to do an internship here in Sweden for a company called Höglands Logistik. My project partner and I were given the assignment to renew the company’s website, which was a great experience for me, to see how people work in the real world.
The environment and culture at JU is warm and friendly. There are many activities for students, such as debates, sports and a language café. As for lectures, the teachers help you to think differently and tackle the problem with a different approach. And you always have the possibility to discuss problems directly with teachers, who are usually easy to reach via email or phone.
It’s really fun to be a student here and you can easily spend all day on campus. You have places to eat, places to train, places to study, and you also have a student pub. You basically have almost everything within arm’s reach."
Want to go even further
Muhammad Imran Assad from Pakistan.
"I have a bachelor in computer science from Pakistan, and I came to a stage in my career where I realised I would need a master’s degree to get any further.
I wanted something that combined informatics with business, and I found it at JIBS. I’m having a great time! The teachers are really committed and deliver more than 100 percent. The courses are up to date with the latest research. JIBS really is international, and it’s such a valuable experience, studying among students from many different countries.
I’m taking a Swedish course on the side because I want to learn the language and more about the culture. It’s interesting, and I plan to find a job in Sweden and stay here for a few years after I finish my degree. Then I will have both an international education and international work experience on my resume!
Being a student here is great. Not only are the courses really good, but there are lots of fun extra curricular activities you can do as well. It’s a good balance. My advice to newcomers is: Get involved! The only way to evolve is to be involved."
