This master program aims to foster a hybrid skill profile that we label as Digital Innovator & Engineer,
which is being discussed across European universities as a profile that should be capable of integrating a technological/computational
perspective with a conceptual/business analysis perspective - see this
on education for digitalization.
The master program takes into account the multi-layered nature of the labor market and the different requirements raised by
different types of companies and information systems – from IT and BP outsourcing,
consultancy/advisory to start-ups and product developers or R&D projects.
Consequently, the master program develops three categories of competences: (a) business analysis and process improvement skills
based on Business Process Modeling tools, Enterprise Architecture frameworks and Process Automation platforms;
(b) engineering skills for distributed and smart information systems, leveraging Artificial Intelligence tools and Big Data analytics;
(c) scientific research competences for those who want to occupy positions in research projects or to pursue a doctoral degree.
