Become an expert in IT-based business innovation, able to devise new services and radically improve the way businesses work with the use of IT.
Information Technologies continue to drastically change the way we live and work. In fact, businesses today cannot function without them, and numerous complex business challenges find their solutions in IT. For example, how can you align an entire supply chain, working with different IT systems of various stakeholders? In which ways can big data support decision-making processes? And how can you keep track of, and thereby improve, logistic processes with the use of sensor technologies? The Master’s in Business Information Technology at the University of Twente (UT) enables you to help businesses to become smarter, using innovative IT-based solutions.
This two-year, English-taught Master’s offers the perfect balance between business management and IT. You will acquire a keen insight into complex business processes and organisations as well as in-depth knowledge of modern information systems and their underlying technologies. Through the latest scientific insights, you will gain expertise in areas such as IT architecture, IT-based business models, enterprise security, smart industry, data-driven decision support systems and IT management.
Start Master’s in Business Information Technology
You start your studies in September or February. In case you need to follow the Pre-Master’s first, you can start in September and continue with the Master’s afterwards.
You have the freedom to tailor your Master’s in Business Information Technology to your own interests and ambitions. At the start of the Master’s, you will choose a specialisation. Your choice determines a part of the courses you will take and the type of research you will engage in during your master’s thesis. You can choose one of these two specialisations:
Do you want to extend your knowledge and skills beyond the Master’s in Business Information Technology? Go for a double degree! You have the opportunity to add a second master’s to your programme: the Master’s in Information Systems at the Westfälische Wilhems-Universität in Münster, Germany. This double degree programme takes two years and upon successful completion, you will earn two Master’s degrees.
Businesses these days are in great need of experts who can integrate, optimise and innovate business processes and information systems. Thus, with a Master’s degree in Business Information Technology, you will be in exceptionally high demand in the job market. Graduates of this Master’s usually find a job immediately after graduation. In fact, many of them get offered a job even before they have completed their Master’s!
Job opportunities for graduates of Business Information Technology
As a graduate, you will be perfectly suitable for any career at the interface between management and computer science. You can take on challenging and often well-paid jobs in a variety of sectors. You could work for software companies, financial institutions, insurance companies, commercial organisations, healthcare institutions, and the list goes on. Examples of jobs you could fulfil include data analyst, IT consultant, enterprise architect, data scientist, information analyst, risk manager or IT manager, to name just a few of the many options.
Of course, you can also choose to first expand your specialist knowledge base by pursuing a PhD or PDEng programme as offered by UT’s Twente Graduate School (TGS). Or you could start up your own company, like some of our former students did with success!
