Objectives et description
The merging of telecommunications and computing technologies, under the name of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) illustrates the convergence between the Telecommunications, Computing, Media and Content industries.
This increasingly global ICT-based industry needs managers, analysts and researchers who are able to understand the interaction between technical systems, public policies business activities, and customer behaviour.
They must also be able to make analysis and decisions, taking into account both the local and the global dimensions of business.
The MSc in ICT Business Management is aimed at training students who will be able to integrate the ICT sector dimension with the Business Management dimension. Target positions are management positions, analyst positions, and researcher positions for the global ICT-based industry (i.e. Telecom, Computing, Media, and Content provision).
The in-depth education in management allows students to work in all management functions of the firm.
In particular, they acquire competences identified as crucial for high-technology companies in a converging and highvelocity environment. They learn how to assess the capabilities offered by technological systems from a market and financial point of view and design new business models and business plans. Students learn to make decisions taking into account the opportunities and constraints of public policies and regulations.
Thanks to their understanding of customer buying and use behaviour, and to their ability to design products, services and solutions, they are trained to deal with the fierce market-led competitive environment of the ICT industry.
They gain knowledge of the interactions between firms and other organisations in order to generate innovations, design new solutions and market them thanks to various cooperation modes, such as R&D agreements, strategic alliances, complementary product partnerships, or value-added reseller partnerships.
Full-time course program based on in-depth management education, a unique specialization, and is completed by validation of a thesis.
This Program is only taught in English
