Program Information The Barcelona School of Management was founded in 2011 as the new business school of the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF). It was launched as a response to the current global need of capacitating state-of-the-art professionals in business management and public administration. Profiting from the UPF's expertise and insight, the Barcelona School of Management offers a wide range of business-related postgraduate education options for both junior and executive professionals, as well as customised in-company training. The Barcelona School of Management bases its methodology on three core ideas: evidence-based management, entrepreneurship and innovation and engaged social value. It also understands education as a merger b etween University and Industry. That is why leading companies and public authorities participate in the

3 development of all its academic programmes. T he school is a catalyst for cross-line training and research, with all its academic training being practice-oriented in order to attain a fully scientific approach to knowledge. The school runs its programmes in two of the UPF's largest and most central campuses, respectively: the Ciutadella Campus and the Balmes building. In 2010, the UPF was designated a Campus of International Excellence in a move promoted by the Spanish Ministry of Education in order to establish Spanish universities of excellence among the best in Europe. The Barcelona School of Management is part of the UPF Group, a leading conglomerate of academic institutions committed to research and knowledge creation.in 2013, 84% of the school's MSc students came from 23 different countries and 71% of its faculty had been educated in top worldwide universities outside Spain. Why to study our Master of Science in ICT Strategic Management? Because all companies need trained employees with management and technology skills to make better business decisions. Because having in-depth knowledge of information systems and analytic tools in strategic management is the key for future success. Because students will be trained on the effective management of big data and analytics and their beneficial application to businesses. Because students will be taught by a world's top ranked faculty. Because students will have class in one of Barcelona's largest and most multicultural campuses: the Ciutadella Campus. Course Outline The Master of Science in ICT Strategic Management consists of 3 class terms (September to June) plus 1 classfree term (July to December). The programme starts with two levelling tracks in which students from different backgrounds are separated in order to complement their previously learned skills: Students coming from Economics or Business Administration-related studies are taught advanced technology application skills. Students coming from IT-related studies, Engineering, Mathematics or Physics are taught business administration and management-related concepts. After the levelling tracks, all students are fully and equally prepared and they reunite for the programme's core courses, which take place along the 2nd and 3rd terms. On the 4th term students work on their master thesis and take on a curricular internship (read more about the programme's internship).

6 Brush-Up Courses We strongly recommend taking these courses with the exception of students who have studied these topics recently. These Brush-Up Courses will provide the background to be able to easily follow classes in the first term. If the student has studied these topics recently attendance may not be necessary. In that case, the student may choose not to attend one or several brush up courses. Each student should discuss their choice with the Program Coordinator. Please contact them in order to enroll in the courses and these programs are free of charge. First Brush-up Week >Descriptive and Inferential Statistics (16 hours) OBJECTIVES This brush up coursed is aimed at MSc students with little or no experience in business-oriented statistics. The purpose of this course is to familiarize such students with basic descriptive and inferential statistics techniques so that they can follow the compulsory course Applied Statistics without any major trouble.

Learning how to display the distribution of a single variable: a. Pie charts and Bar graphs b. Histograms and Stemplots 3. Learning how to describe the distribution of a single variable: a. Measures of the center: the median and the mean b. Measures of the spread: variance, standard deviation, and quartiles c. Measures of the shape: skewness and kurtosis d. Exceptions to the pattern of a distribution: the outliers e. A convenient graphical representation of the measures: the boxplot 4. Approximating a variable s distribution through a density curve a. Why are density curves useful? b. How are density curves described? c. A very special density curve: the Normal curve 5. The relationship between two numerical variables: an introduction a. The roles of a variable in a relationship: dependent variables vs. independent variables b. Displaying the relationship between two variables: the scatterplot c. Describing the relationship between two variables: 6. The relationship between two numerical variables: the linear regression a. Understanding the OLS regression line b. Learning to use the regression line to make predictions c. Limitations of regression: 7. The relationship between two categorical variables a. Marginal and conditional distributions in two-way tables b. Testing if the two variables are related: the chi-square test 8. Inferential Statistics: an introduction a. Population vs. sample b. The sample mean: a random variable c. Using the sample mean to infer the population mean. The role of standard error of the mean d. How sure can we be that our inference was accurate? The role of confidence intervals 9. Hypotheses testing: an introduction a. The null and the alternative hypotheses: a court example b. Setting the hypotheses correctly: the null is what I always want to reject

7 c. Figuring out how strong the evidence against the null is: an exercise that requires inferential statistics and computing probabilities from density curves. >Accounting and Finance (16 hours) OBJECTIVES This "brush up" course is targeted to those students with a weak accounting and finance background or to those who need to "refresh" their knowledge.
