Description

Why study this postgraduate programme?

The main objective of our programme is to give enough holistic IT culture so you have less fear to enter IT and become a bridge builder between IT and business.

Our programme thus aims to make you become comfortable in IT environments and therefore focuses on the IT essentials: IT literacy, digital fluency, digital transformation essentials and application of basic coding. You’ll also gain transversal skills, which allow you to form a bridge between business and technology, and to manage and communicate your projects in the digital era. To put your knowledge and skills into practice, you can apply for an internship of several months – possibly at your own employer.

The training consists of theoretical courses, workshops, coding projects, seminars, guest lectures, group projects, mentorships, and an internship. Our programme is designed to be close to the field and to the professionals in order to offer you a clear vision of the IT job and a quick anchorage in this sector. The evaluation will be based on theoretical exams, work projects, compulsory attendance of certain seminars or workshops, and the successful completion of tests. Internships will be assessed by the placement promoters.
