Why study a Masters in Strategic Management of Information Technologies?

The program has the goal to train professionals who contribute to an organization through the appropriation of knowledge and methodologies allowing Colombian enterprises to achieve competitive advantages leveraged with information technologies (IT). These benefits are achieved when organizations conceive, justify, assess, and implement information technologies aligned with strategy and objectives. These innovations should be led by professionals with superior managerial ability and excellent knowledge of information technologies.

Also, the program seeks to expand and develop advanced knowledge for dealing with the inadequate alignment of information technology-related business problems. Participants will develop capabilities to define the organization’s strategy; ensure the alignment of information technology resources; manage the organization conversion towards a digital environment, and manage information services supporting the strategic requirements for achieving long-term competitive benefits in local and global environments.

To achieve integration in the professional practice, a face-to-face modality will be applied, using a methodology incorporating the study of the two disciplines on which the program is based, and the construction of analytical tools adaptable to the diversity of conditions encountered by IT processes.
