5 +Information Technology / 5 INDUSTRY INTRODUCTION In spite of the economic crisis, business linked to IT sectors is on the uprise. As McKinsey Global Institute (2011) points out, this can be observed in the fact that for every position that disappears from a traditional business environment, 2.6 positions in the technology sector are created. The European Commission is aware of the challenge brought on by this new reality and warns that in 2015 around 864,000 vacancies in technological sectors will not be able to be filled. The statistics that stem from this phenomenon are astounding. With an annual increase of more than 3% during the last 10 years, this is a sector that already employs more than 6.6 million people in Europe. This equals 3.1% of the labor force. However, this is a market that demonstrates a significant gap between available human capital and company needs. In particular, companies demand professionals with a solid base in business and management that also possess technological skills. This is not an easy profile to find. In the same way, many job offers require official international certificates in IT management which can complicate the process of hiring a potential candidate. This has transformed the IT work market into an attractive option in which to develop a long, professional and flourishing career. The labor market related to IT has become an attractive professional environment where it is possible to develop a strong professional career with stable, well-paid positions. These positions open doors to endless possibilities for developing and adding value to organizations whose professional offer is not on par with the demands of the labor market. For this reason, if you are looking for a program that will give you the needed tools to enhance your professional career with a solid base in new technology, do not hesitate to find out more about our specialized program +Information Technology.
