The SBWL In­form­a­tion Man­age­ment and Con­trol is a Spe­cial­iz­a­tion Pro­gram con­sist­ing of five courses equal­ing 10 semester hours and 20 ECTS cred­its for the Bach­elor Pro­gram in Busi­ness, Eco­nom­ics and So­cial Sciences. It is offered to stu­dents ma­jor­ing in In­form­a­tion Sys­tems, Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion, In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion or Busi­ness Law.

This means that each course is in­di­vidu­ally graded based on at least three dif­fer­ent assess­ment cri­teria.

Slides of our SBWL IMC present­a­tion


The SBWL IMC can help you pre­pare with the ad­vanced man­age­ment skills and IT un­der­stand­ing needed to be­come a senior man­ager, aud­itor, ana­lyst, con­trol­ler or de­cision maker in the In­form­a­tion Sys­tems Man­age­ment field. The spe­cial­iz­a­tion is designed spe­cific­ally for those with an in­terest in com­bin­ing man­age­ment with IT in at­tempt to achieve stra­tegic and per­form­ance ob­ject­ives in a vari­ety of or­gan­iz­a­tional set­tings in­clud­ing busi­nesses, gov­ern­ment and non-­profits. The course in­teg­rates vari­ous ma­na­gerial di­men­sions for devel­op­ing IT and op­tim­iz­ing IT op­er­a­tions. You will not only fo­cus on tra­di­tional ef­fi­ciency and ef­fect­ive­ness con­sid­er­a­tions, but also, for example, on in­nov­a­tion cap­ab­il­it­ies, IT com­pli­ance, in­form­a­tion se­cur­ity, ma­tur­ity levels, and en­vir­on­mental IT sus­tain­ab­il­ity. The spe­cial­iz­a­tion is of par­tic­u­lar im­port­ance at this mo­ment in time, when or­gan­iz­a­tions are pres­sured by weak­en­ing mar­kets and scarce cap­ital re­sources, while be­com­ing in­creas­ingly de­pend­ent upon IS per­form­ance.

Edu­ca­tional Aims

  • Know how to make the right de­cisions that lead to high per­form­ance in IT pro­jects and op­er­a­tions.

  • Un­der­stand the typ­ical in­form­a­tion sys­tems, in­form­a­tion as­sets and in­fra­struc­ture in con­tem­por­ary busi­ness.

  • Develop man­age­ment skills while deep­en­ing your know­ledge of in­form­a­tion sys­tems  

  • De­liver in­nov­a­tions through pro­jects in in­form­a­tion sys­tems, IT pro­cesses and ser­vices, either in­tern­ally or as an out­side con­sult­ant.

  • Un­der­stand how IS can be evalu­ated, con­trolled and audited.

  • Ap­ply frame­works and meth­ods to con­tem­por­ary IS ap­plic­a­tions.

  • Ac­quire crit­ical skills to pre­pare you for a seni­or-­level pos­i­tion, such as Chief In­form­a­tion Se­cur­ity Man­ager, IT strategist, or IT risk man­ager.

Re­com­men­ded Course of Study and SBWL Struc­ture

The pro­gram struc­ture of the spe­cial­iz­a­tion al­lows stu­dents to com­plete within two semesters. The ne­ces­sary con­di­tion to en­roll courses 2 to 5 is the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of course 1. It is ad­vised to take course 2, the second found­a­tion course, im­me­di­ately after passing course 1. We will en­sure that both courses 1 and 2 can be com­pleted within one semester.
