Information Architecture and Innovation

Degree of Master of Science (120 credits) with a major in Informatics

Information Architecture and Innovation

This programme provides knowledge and skills in three key areas: project management, the use of IT in business, organizational and technological innovation, and the evaluation of IT in organizations.

The programme targets students with a bachelor degree in informatics/informa­tion systems, business administration or computer science.

The role of information systems is strategic in a society where information is expected to be produced, co-produced, remediated, consumed, and seamlessly shared across an infinite amount of connected environments. From sensors to ambient devices, from smartphones to autonomous cars, information systems are ubiquitous and so commonplace that they have become somewhat invisible. When shopping, traveling, paying taxes or exercising our rights, we always rely on some digital infrastructure to smoothly and successfully support our actions.

In such a landscape, organisations are dependent on their ability to shape products and services that can thrive in the complex environment created by the interplay of many connected moving parts. Information systems and their applications are essential elements in any such strategy.

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.

The applicant must hold the minimum of a bachelor’s degree (i.e the equivalent of 180 ECTS credits at an accredited university) with at least 60 credits in informatics, business administration, computer science, computer engineering, information engineering, or equivalent. Proof of English proficiency is required.
