The Master of Science in Information Management (MINFM) is a one-year master's programme taught in English. The programme offers you advanced nontechnical training in information management. The emphasis is on the efficient and effective application and management of IT in various business contexts such as finance, marketing, HR, production, and logistics.
EEA nationals and Non-EEA nationals who reside in Belgium under a valid residence permit can follow less than 60 ECTS per academic year and accordingly spread their studies in several years. This possibility needs to be discussed with a study career consultant. Note that there are no part-time, evening or weekend courses organized for this category of students.
The programme consists of a common core covering approximately half of the credits and a master’s thesis responsible for about a quarter of the credits. The programme is to be supplemented with electives subdivided in three domains: data science electives, software engineering electives, and management electives, until 60 credits are reached. These electives enable you to either explore specific areas in greater depth or gain a broader understanding through a multidisciplinary approach. In completing your master’s thesis, you can apply the acquired skills within a specific business context.
Graduates of the Master in Information Management play a very sought after bridging role between computer science and business. They pursue careers as information analysts, project leaders or information technology strategists.
