Master in Management in Virtual Environments (e-business) 2-year program

WATCH THE FILM ABOUT THE PROGRAM 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM 

The program is aimed at preparing “digitally native” students for the role of managers and specialists ready to take advantage of Internet and network technologies in creating competitive advantage of an enterprise. The greatest value of the program is to provide the students with the mix of the top quality managerial courses with the specialized courses linked with Internet and technology influence on contemporary management.

The project responds to the widening competence gap in the labor market, ie. the growing market demand for professionals proficient in operating in cyberspace that are able to exploit its potential to the strategic development of the organization, and the lack of educational products, which focus on educating students in the field of management over the Internet, its features and the changes it produces.

After completing the specialization, students will demonstrate high competences in management of an organization using the potential of the Internet and cyberspace.
