The focus of Business Administration is on how a business is organised, and on how it does business. You gain insight into the structure of a business, its internal dynamics and its external relationships with stakeholders, and you learn to understand those stakeholders better. This will enable you to make successful business decisions. The Master’s programme offers you an understanding of one of the domains that traditionally constitute an important challenge for businesses. We prepare you for managerial positions in one of the functional management domains (e.g. HRM, taxation, finance). You learn how customers think, what the importance is of a fiscal environment, how to set up an efficient HR policy, how to use IT to monitor profitability, what points to consider when financing new activities, or how to make strategic goals more feasible by means of an optimal business structure.
The Management and IT main subject obviously introduces you to the management-oriented dimension of IT. You learn how to set up, supervise and complete a successful IT project. In addition, you learn to understand the increasingly important role of information in healthy business operations. You are trained to coach a business in the automation and computerisation of their processes. The programme also covers soft skills such as communication, or how people deal with IT systems. You gain insight into security and help desk management, and additionally, you study networks and cloud computing, the basics of programming and functional analysis, and how to write program prototypes.
