Mannheim Master in Management: Information Systems & Information Technology

Digital Transformation through Information Systems and Technology

Today, information systems not only support efficient and effective operations, but also drive innovative business models and enable digital products and services. In order to stay competitive, businesses are forced to continually find new ways to leverage information technology and pursue digital innovation. One of their main obstacles in this endeavor is a lack of professionals that understand how information systems can be developed, implemented, and used in the business context. This includes professionals with expertise in areas such as (agile) development methods, effective system use, IT management and governance, and organizational change.

If you would like to become one of those highly sought-after professionals and learn how businesses can leverage information systems success, then the specialization in Information Systems and Information Technology is the right choice for you!
