The Master’s Programme in Information Systems − Designing for Digital Practice − gives you in-depth understanding of digitalisation and digital practice. Digital practice concerns how working methods, behaviours, and activities are influenced by digitalisation. This is an internationally competitive programme, with a focus on information systems development, that gives you the skills needed to work in this area or continue on a research career path.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME?

The rapidly increasing digitalisation of society involves major changes for individuals, organisations and society. As a result, future information systems graduates must be equipped and prepared to tackle these challenges. The Master’s Programme in Information Systems provides you with expertise in management and development of digital practices, focusing on systems development based upon organisational requirements. In other words, the programme covers the fundamentals of how work is undertaken in a digital environment. This includes courses on digitalisation and its effects, infrastructure and advanced software engineering methods for creating complex information systems.

You will learn how systems and applications interact with individuals and groups in the various activities performed in organisations today. You will be challenged with courses on big data and machine learning. You will master how to develop systems that are based on both clients’ and users’ needs, and to do so in teams. You will practice adopting scientific approaches to practical problem solving.

During the programme you can expect to:

  • gain expertise in the management of the systems development process,
  • learn to develop complex information systems that are based on clients’ and users’ needs, and
  • understand the organisational context and need for information systems and system development.

Information systems is an exciting and dynamic field and the Master’s Programme in Information Systems focuses on the latest developments and research in the IT field, set in one of the most digitalised societies in the world today, and is taught by instructors at the very cutting edge of research and practice.

Student profile
You have a strong foundation in information systems or computer science and realise that a holistic view of information systems includes users and organisations as well as technology. You are interested in digitalisation and how it is affecting and will affect individuals, organisations, and society. You might even have an interest in a specific area in which information systems are particularly important.

You are able to critically analyse and reflect on problems and are creative and innovative enough to come up with your own ideas. You enjoy problem solving and team work and your natural curiosity drives you to seek a deeper understanding, not just to learn the facts.

A future PhD education is a possibility you may have thought about and you would value the opportunity to get in closer contact with current research and the craft of writing a thesis.
