ISM is a two-year English-taught master´s degree programme available at the Faculty of Informatics and Statistics (FIS) of VŠE. The study programme is for anyone aiming at a career as an IT manager, project manager, information system auditor, knowledge engineer, business analyst or consultant, either in the private or the public sector.

The key areas of study represent a carefully balanced blend of technology- and management- oriented subjects related to IS/ ICT management, enterprise IT, business process engineering and optimization, project management, information systems audit and data mining.
Within the minor specialization, student can choose to focus on business and management issues or on insurance mathematics.
