International Master in Management of Information Technology (IMMIT)

Content

Information and information technology (IT) have increasingly become an integral part of products and services and form the foundation of business processes. Organisations must know how to make the right choices with respect to new IT systems and, at the same time, ensure that existing business processes continue to receive high quality service from IT. This tight link between IT and organisational processes means that the IT department is not alone in its responsibility for the effective use of information and IT. Getting more value from IT is an increasingly important organisational competency. The IMMIT programme is designed to address these new Information & Management challenges.

The IMMIT programme degree totals 120 ECTS credits, to be completed in 2 years of full-time studies. The language of instruction is English. The first semester will start in August at IAE Aix-en-Provence. The emphasis will be on the foundations of international business. The semester will finish in December and in January the students will move to the University of Turku in Finland to start the second semester. The main focus of the second semester will be on skills in IT management. The second semester will finish in May. The third semester will start at Tilburg University in September and the emphasis shifts towards integration issues such as the role of IT in business transformation, management of IT-based innovation and more specialised topics in international IT management. The fourth semester starts in January/February and is devoted to thesis work, which includes an internship in an international operating company. This internship could take place anywhere in the world, although most IMMIT students find an internship position in Europe.

Each partner university requires a minimum number of ECTS to be earned at its own institution (on-campus) and the Master's thesis is jointly supervised by faculty members from each university. Upon completion, students are awarded three degrees: Master of Science in Information Management (recognised in the Netherlands), Master Sciences du Management Spécialité Management et Technologies de l'Information (recognised in France) and Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration (recognised in Finland). IMMIT is a two-year programme (120 ECTS) and is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in IT, Business or Management.

The programme is structured around four successive modules:
- Management and multicultural environment module (IAE, University of Marseille)
- IT management and research skills module (TSE, University of Turku)
- Integration and career module (Tilburg University)
- Real life experience and thesis (IAE, TSE and Tilburg University)
