- Life at ISEG
- 111 years
If you think the technological world and the business world are increasingly interconnected, you are not alone.
ISEG decided to bring the two together in the same space and created the Masters in Management Information Systems (MMIS). The master’s degree where information is power!
The MMIS offers rigorous and challenging training in information systems and technologies. The professionalising nature of this master’s programme and the development of the technical and scientific potential of these future areas will broaden students’ career prospects.
Students will also have the opportunity to enhance their international experience and business environment exposure with a hands-on SAP immersive program abroad. For that, we established a partnership with the University HTW SAAR (Saarbrücken Germany) and SAP*. In the scope of this partnership, we offer an optional program with the duration of one week, in which the students have SAP classes at our partner university and visits to SAP St. Ingbert, SAP headquarters in Walldorf and an SAP consulting firm (additional fee applied**). We also offer, in the second year, an elective course of SAP (Enterprise Systems with SAP Labs).
*The effective implementation of the program is dependent on the national and international public health conditions and on international stability.
** Prices may be adjusted if international economic conditions change significantly.
The MGSI’s main objectives are training with high technical competence in planning information systems: selection of tools to be used and modules to be developed; management of the development process; implementation and integration; and establishment of security policies.
Information systems and technologies are an essential factor in the competitiveness and success of organisations. Having the skills to understand these resources and know how to manage them is fundamental.
The course aims to develop a culture of high exigencies, rigour and quality, becoming a differentiating factor and creating and consolidating knowledge.
Students can optionally participate in an SAP ERP induction programme, which will take place at the University of Saarbrücken, in Germany, as well as visit SAP and some of its partners, on a one-week trip to the city of Saarbrücken (subject to travel restrictions conditions).
Most students manage to get a job placement in the market before finishing the course, and key institutions in the Portuguese economy guarantee this employability.
The professors are experienced and have a close link between the academic view and the business reality.
To aid students to obtain high technical competencies in the following domains:
i) Information systems planning;
ii) Adequate tool selection when developing Information systems;
iii) Management of the development process, implementation, integration and establishment of information security protocols in information systems.
In addition to the technological aspects, the course includes training in relevant areas, aiding professionals in their perception and participation in an organisational context.
Graduates who wish to complement and deepen first-cycle education and/or obtain a professional specialisation in information systems management and enhance employment opportunities and career prospects.
This Masters exposes its graduates to a wide range of career opportunities, some of a more technical nature and others more related to management areas. It should be highlighted that the employment rate of the previous editions has been approximately 100%.
The main career opportunities are in information systems implementation consulting, strategic consulting for information and communication technologies, digital marketing, and Enterprise Information Systems for companies in the finance and technological sectors, and also services in general.
Those students who wish to acquire professional experience can do so by opting to carry out the Masters Final Work in the form of an internship with well-known companies with whom ISEG has agreements, which includes submitting an report.
