The Master in Information Systems was designed together with a board of leading Austrian stakeholders from industry and government to meet today’s challenges and to give a solid basis for tomorrow’s demands. After graduation, students are qualified for a wide spectrum of careers. Some of our graduates choose to become analysts and managers in IT departments of large companies, others excel as specialists in IT firms (hardware, software, services), some focus on business consulting or decide to found their own start-up companies (Source).
