Master of Science in Management and Informatics (120 ECTS, English)

Course Description

The MSc in in Management & Informatics is offered jointly by the Faculty of Informatics and by the Faculty of Economics. This full-time study programme comprises 120 ECTS spread over 4 semesters (usual duration 2 years) and is entirely offered in English.

This unique cross-discipline programme combines USI's world-leading expertise in Management and Informatics and offers exciting career prospects that range from project management to consulting.

This programme provides students with the necessary tools and skills for understanding complex information technology problems while, at the same time, knowing about the needs and requirements of a modern organization.
The shortage of professionals who can interface these two sides is apparent in many companies and leads to extra costs, development of less efficient systems, and general misunderstandings between the technical and organizational parts of a company. The purpose of the degree is to offer a solution to this problem, and to educate professionals who can take responsibility for the interface between these two sides of an organization.

This Master offers a balanced combination of courses that cover the necessary background in management as well as the fundamental aspects of current and evolving information technologies. Moreover, the programme provides students with a specialized knowledge in topics at the interface between management and informatics such as enterprise resource planning. Since English is the unique teaching language, graduates are well-prepared to work in international companies. Moreover, the interdisciplinary approach of this Master provides a general skill to work across traditional areas.
