Comunicat tip General in IT&C

Central European University Business School announces the official launching of the Master of Science in Information Technology Management Program in Romania. The MSc in IT Management Program is an American management degree that is much more specialized than a general MBA. The program focuses on the relevant management issues in the IT discipline across various industries, providing a unique blend of both technology and business management skills development.

The MSc in IT Management program provides participants with the skills necessary to evaluate technological and managerial solutions, and to identify which combination of these solutions would enhance the added value in their specific industry and type of business. Particular emphasis will be given to developing entrepreneurial skills. Methods for transforming technological knowledge into profitable business applications is a core element throughout this program. Strong industry involvement and executive participation guarantees the timeliness and relevance of the technology entrepreneurial initiatives that are generated during the program. The latest technological innovations and their applications will be explored, providing participants with a competitive edge in exploiting existing, and/or designing new in-house technology for enhancing the product offering, for better market positioning, and for market expansion.
In addition, the program will address the large communication gap between so-called “techies” and managers. Participants will focus on the fundamentals of both schools of thinking and learn how to mediate, interpret and create a solid bridge between the two groups. Both the program content and the innovative teaching methods, such as: in-company internships, student managed investment funds, senior industry executive round table meetings and presentations, venture capitalist monitoring and inter-campus exchanges are pivotal to the success of the program.
The MSc in IT Management is a 30-credit degree program, to be completed in 6 modules (one calendar year). Students that opt for an intense course-load may complete the program in 4 modules. The degree awarded is a Master of Science in Information Technology Management, registered by the Board of Regents of the New York State Department of Education.
The program is targeted primarily to those who are currently working in the IT and Telecom fields, or who have an interest in these areas. Given the program’s focus on management rather than on technology, it targets those who wish to develop and broaden their business understanding and skills and those who wish to acquire relevant management competence in the technology management field. The program has been carefully tailor-made to accommodate the realities and needs of young professionals, and to assist in the acceleration of their corporate career progression and entrepreneurial success.

CEU Business School was established in 1988 (it was known for the past 15 years as IMC - International Management Center) by a group of visionary leaders, including philanthropist George Soros and Hungarian entrepreneur Sándor Demján. It was the first educational institution in the CEE region to train managers by offering a western graduate business program leading to an American MBA. Since its inception, the school has pursued the goal of developing standards in line with Western institutions, while ensuring timely and relevant consideration of the changes within the region’s transforming economies.
After 12 years of granting joint degrees, IMC joined Central European University, as an integral part of the institution, but remaining a legally independent, separately registered entity. It’s name was officially changed to CEU Graduate School of Business in September of 2002.
