Technological development caused profound changes in our society. Changes that affect both the macroeconomy and the labour market as well as the daily life of citizens.

Information and communication technologies (ICT) have been the driving force behind many of these changes. A wide range of sectors in all kinds of companies require ICT, for this reason organizations need employees who have knowledge of multiple disciplines.

By this I mean having multiple competencies that can contribute to business strategies. This of course implies the correct organization of the different business units which can only be achieved through good project management, one that is flexible and agile. With such management, project managers will be able to optimize their resources and boost their performance. Moreover, it has become essential to obtain PMP or CAPM certifications, as many calls for projects require qualified and certified personnel in their teams. Our group stands out for its excellence in project management, we have noticed a gap in this area of knowledge that we want to cover by offering the Master in Information Systems Management.  This course will allow students to occupy higher positions at work and even to embark on a new path in their career in the field of Project Management.  The complexity of mastering the transversal knowledge required by companies is tackled in this programme, which this year continues to be on our list of master degree offers.
