Masters Degree Programme in Global IT Management (GITM)


The Global IT Management (GITM) master's degree programme provides students competence for managerial, project leadership, and expert positions in design, implementation and service facilitation of information technology. It trains professionals to work in information resources management in international enterprises and in international project environments within the ICT-enterprises. It prepares students with a background in business and/or information technology or computer science, in order to become "hybrid" managers at the interface between ICT, business, and people. The successful completion of the GITM master's degree makes a student eligible for postgraduate studies in Information Systems Science.

The two-year GITM Master's programme consists of 120 ECTS credits (minimum requirement) and is completed in 2 years full-time studies. The language of instruction is English. The final degree is either Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration (M.Sc.(Econ. & Bus. Adm.)) or Master of Science (M.Sc.). Entrance degree together with possible supplementary studies defines the final degree which is already decided in the admission process. The major in the both degrees is Information Systems Science.

The core of programme consists of IT management and Software business related studies. The minor studies are selected in the study plan phase based on student's specialization interests. The language studies depend on students background and their own interests. Each GITM-student's study and future plan is supported by Career management studies (FUTU3, 2 ECTS in optional studies).

Depending on the students' background and the target degree in GITM programme students might have to supplement their earlier studies with business and economic studies or information systems studies. In the study structure some of the supplementary studies can be included in the optional studies.

The GITM programme is one of the Turku Centre for Computer Science master's programmes. Turku School of Economics has run the Global Information Technology Management (GITM) programme since 2003. We have and have had students from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Cameroon, China, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Finland, Ghana, India, Iran, Latvia, Malaysia, Nigeria, Nepal, Pakistan, Romania, Slovenia, Russia, South Korea, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, USA, and Vietnam.
