5 specializations and career prospects Master of Management: specialization Management Information Systems (MIS) The specialization MIS focuses on the organization and management of information systems in business functions and at corporate level. Graduates are prepared to become business analysts and consultants. Business computing was mostly used for relatively simple operations, such as tracking sales or payroll data. Over time, these applications have become more complex. Increasing amounts of information are stored and linked to previously separate information systems. As more and more data were stored and linked this information was analyzed in further detail, creating entire management reports from the raw, stored data. The term MIS describes these kinds of applications, which are developed to provide managers with information about sales, inventories, and other data that help in managing the company. Today, more than ever before, a company is a complex information system. What are your career prospects? This programme enables students to function optimally within organizations and to assume management functions. Competences such as project team work, creative business problem solving and management reporting will be developed. Alumni occupy prominent functions in companies all around the world. They testify to the dynamism of our highlevel training. Graduates with the specialization MIS become ICT consultants or ICT project managers. Graduates with the specialization IMS take up marketing management functions in high-tech multinational firms. Master of Management: specialization International Marketing Strategy (IMS) The major IMS focuses on (business-to-business) marketing strategy in an international context. Graduates gain insight in timely marketing strategies. Complementary to a more classic consumer marketing perspective, this major digs deep into marketing strategies, processes and the relationships between organizations whether they produce hightech products/services or not. While consumer marketing is highly visible and well developed in our Western hemisphere (e.g. due to explicit exposure and branding), marketing between organizations remains a rather unexplored area. More even than consumer marketing, this field requires an explicit international perspective.
