More information


Information Technology has an enormous impact on companies and other organisations, and on society as a whole. This comes with the necessary technical challenges of implementing the IT solutions and getting them up and running, but also wider and more fundamental challenges. With this specialisation, you will gain knowledge of how IT affects organisations, also from the perspective of Management Science, and become an expert on how organisations can handle security and privacy concerns.


This Master's programme is a collaboration between the Faculty of Science and the Nijmegen School of Management (NSM).
