We are honored to represent the local Panama ABPMP chapter. Its founding members have led hundreds of business processes automation initiatives during the past 18 years, in more than 20 countries. Having witnessed firsthand the tremendous growth and importance for business success that BPM has had over last decade (Gartner estimated in 2012 the USD 2.6 billion BPM market size to grow to up to USD 7 billion until 2018), we firmly believe that a common body of knowledge that encompasses BPM as a vendor independent methodology is not only needed to enhance the punctual outcome of such a project but is in fact fundamental to allow for continued business process improvements in the first place. This importance is only enhanced by the existence of a strong and recurring pattern of how BPM solutions have been implemented and how its impact is being measured.
When introducing new users to BPM as a methodology and BPMS as a technology, we often are stressing the importance to differentiate between project management and business process management in order to achieve successful process implementations, continuously. In order to execute successful and linear BPM projects continuously, hence to achieve continued and cyclical business process improvements, a unifying guideline such as the ABPMP’s CBOK that covers all the intervening aspects, from the methodology to the organization and applied technologies, is required.
In that sense we are thrilled to not only share the tried and proven ABPMP accumulative knowledge in our region, with the mission to enhance regional BPM project results and to alleviate the practical application of the CBOK in real life scenarios, but to also actively contribute with the learning curves and experiences of our local members to further enhance that common body of knowledge.

The value added of the department of business information systems at the Paderborn University is that it calls for an interdisciplinary approach, where diverse teams research new ways to translate rapidly changing information and communication technologies into business applications. These help private and public sector enterprises to optimize their business processes with respect to costs, turnover, time to market and quality. The focus is on people as users, since innovative applications ease their workload, enhance their potential, and boost their productivity and the quality of their work. Since its establishment in 1990, the department has been devoted to meeting these challenges – and its efforts have paid off. In recent CHE Rankings the department, with its seven professors including four chairs, repeatedly placed near the very top.
Research activities at the department center on the design, development and application of information and communication systems. Emphasis is also laid on the analysis and evaluation of business information mechanisms in a socioeconomic context. The result is a predominantly solution-centered approach towards developing successful business applications. Most of our research projects are inspired by our network of partnerships with industry. Ideally, the results of our research enable our partners to generate innovative products and services. This practical focus notwithstanding, basic academic research is a strong and indispensable element of the Department’s work. Accordingly, our activities are integrated in various project networks, some publicly funded, some designed as public private partnerships. Our research is conducted in a variety of contexts: DFG grants (e.g., Priority Programmes, Collaborative Research Centres, Individual Research Grants), the International Graduate School, interdisciplinary cooperation projects, and European research projects. Our private sector partners include BMW, Benteler, Bertelsmann, Continental Teves, Daimler, Deutsche Bank, Hella, IBM, Lufthansa, Miele, E.ON Ruhrgas, SAP, Siemens and Volkswagen. Our high volume of external funding reflects these commitments.

Degree programs and careers
Business information systems degree programs aim to produce qualified and knowledgeable experts with a strong interdisciplinary awareness who are able to view modern information and communication technologies from a business angle. This is achieved by a curriculum that imparts a thorough grounding in business information systems, business administration and economics, and computer science. Our Bachelor and Master programs take a scientific approach, yet also emphasize current e-business developments and applications. In other words, students gain a strong theoretical and practical grounding thanks to an efficiently structured schedule that also involves project work. They are familiarized with the tools and systems currently used in industry, so that towards the end of the programs they have mastered both scientific methodologies and their practical implementation. Our programs encourage students to work on their own initiative, take responsibility for their own work, be creative and develop communication skills. Researchers and Ph.D. candidates of the department are expected to work on their own projects independently. Once our Ph.D. candidates graduate, they join the backbone of the international network of knowledge and cooperation that drives Business Information Systems at the Paderborn University. The department has produced a large number of spin-offs.

Information Systems (IS) support individuals in organizations with information for better or faster decisions. They enable new business processes and business models, altering the competitive arena in which a company is embedded. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are utilized for corporate activities from the perspective of distinct user roles. The nature of the IS discipline is both, theoretical and technological. While theoretic-empirical contributions focus on the management and use of Information Systems and Information Infrastructures in organizations, technological-constructivist contributions aim at the design of IS for facilitating new business processes and models.
Fields of Research
The area is followig a complementary research approach, combining a thoretic-empirical and technological-constructivist perspective. Our fields of research can be grouped into the following major areas:
- Development of Information Systems and Infrastructures,
- Innovative Information Systems,
- Management of Information Systems and Infrastructures, as well as
- Electronic Business and Government.
In the context of Information Systems and Instrastructure Design, a variety of interconnected themes is covered. Software Product Management and Usability Engineering investigate development processes with specific focus on customer and end-user integration. Component-based Software Development and Object Data Management offer the instruments to design and to develop specific business functions on the application layer as well as to manage the underlying data. The productivity and impact of Information Systems and Infrastructure Development Processes is investigated in order to improve the respective collaboration activities.
In the realm of Innovative Information Systems and Infrastructures, we design and evaluate new systems concepts and solutions. Distributed Systems and Context-Aware Computing lay the foundation of inter-organizational Information Systems and Infrastructures that facilitate new forms of the value chain. The middleware layer allows for a modular and flexible design of contemporary application functions. Enterprise Information Systems, relying on enterprise software packages such as Enterprise Resource Planning, Customer Relationship Management or Business Intelligence, are the backbone and - in some instances - a differentiator of corporations outperforming their competitors. We take an end-user perspective on Enterprise Information Systems and conduct research in the areas of social augmentation, information security, and flexibility.
In the domain of Information Systems and Infrastructure management, we explore the full potential of these research objects. We pursue investigations in the areas of Information Management and Business Process Management.

The Katz MBA program was established in 1960, although the business school's roots go back to 1907, with the University of Pittsburgh's Evening School of Economics, Accounts, and Finance. Katz was the world's first to offer a one-year MBA program. That spirit of innovation guides us today and is reflected in the life's work of the school's namesake: the late Joseph M. Katz, a consummate entrepreneur, businessman, and Pittsburgher.
Katz graduates form a worldwide network — 23,000 Katz alumni live and work in more than 90 countries. That is to say nothing of the broader reach of the University of Pittsburgh, a world-respected leader across virtually all disciplines. That includes the undergraduate College of Business Administration, whose annual enrollment tops 2,000 students, and complements the nearly 1,000 students in Katz's master's and doctoral programs.
Led by Dean Arjang Assad, the rigorous academic programs at Katz are based upon four key principles:
- Experience-based learning. Katz graduates make an impact on day one because credit hours are "ramp up" time. Our students learn from entrepreneurial faculty. They prep for the day-to-day demands of business through Consulting Field Projects, fellowships, professional development training, internships and co-ops, and national case competitions.
- Collaboration. Through Pitt, students and faculty have opportunities to an abundance of cross-disciplinary collaboration. Additionally, at every stage, Katz students serve on cross-functional teams and complete group projects. We're molding a new breed of leader: The open-minded contributor who is ready for any challenge.
- Innovation. Business agility is a must for businesses and individuals. Our flexible framework enables students to load up on electives, and pursue interdisciplinary certificates and joint or dual degrees. Katz offers a certificate program in Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship that prepares students for product development, new venture initiation, and product commercialization, among other areas.
- Globalism. The Katz International Business Center provides access to an array of international business opportunities. Additionally, Katz offers a Global Management Certificate and two joint degree options with Pitt's Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. In global commerce, the efficient coordination of the supply chains creates value.

Since its founding, the UE has been a European center of concentration of knowledge, a school sought by people coming from various backgrounds that here met the conditions to study several fields of knowledge and practice the ability to put forward their arguments.
With the eyes in the future, the UE is proud of its past. It is never enough to remember that from its cloisters teachers and students left in ships bound for the Far East. They carried with them our culture and brought in return the cultures they discovered. They were the workers of the first great globalization that the world has known.
In the 20th and 21st centuries, after its re-foundation in 1979, the UE stands under the sign of pursuit of knowledge, valuing of experience, socialization of knowledge and, again, internationalization. As in the past, internationalization assumes, on one hand, tolerance to face other cultures and, on the other hand, the adoption of rules and standards commonly accepted by the most prestigious universities.
Today, the UE is setting up a broad spectrum of knowledge, which offers bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees as well as informal courses aimed at recycling knowledge and ensuring lifelong learning.
The UE's offer includes a wide range of courses in various fields of knowledge, all complying with the requirements of the Bologna Process. Structured in four schools - School of Arts, School of Social Sciences, School of Sciences and Technology and Nursing School - and an Institute for Advanced Training, the UE offers 36 courses leading to the bachelor's degree (1st cycle), 68 courses leading to the master’s degree (2nd cycle), of which 2 are Erasmus Mundus, 2 integrated master’s, 29 courses leading to a doctoral degree (3rd cycle) and 32 post-graduate courses.
The UE believes in networking, contemplating in its offer 18 courses in association with other universities, with a special reference to 4 1st cycle courses and 3 2nd cycle courses with the possibility of double degree with Extremadura University and Castilla-La Mancha University.
Submitted to international assessment, the UE is today an integral part of the European Network of Higher Education and Science and its qualifications are recognized and validated.
Through the Science Park and Technology of Alentejo, the UE seeks to be a partner of the companies based there, encouraging them to innovate products and methods and to improve their competitiveness.
UE also assume the Portuguese-speaking world in the southern hemisphere as a field for cooperation in education and scientific and artistic research.
With the arts, humanities, sciences and technologies the UE continues its journey from the past to the future.

University of Minho
The University of Minho (UMinho) is one of the Portuguese new universities created in the early 1970s. Currently it has around 20,000 students enrolled in the degree programs offered by its eleven schools that cover most areas of knowledge (sciences, engineering, psychology, education, social sciences, economics and management, law, humanities and arts, architecture, medicine, nursing).
The University is named after the Northwest region of Portugal where it is located. The University campi, and other main infrastructures, are situated in the cities of Braga and Guimarães. The region has a strong tradition of vibrant entrepreneurship rooted in a rich history associated to the Roman empire, to the Christianisation of the Iberic Peninsula and to the foundation of the Portuguese nation.
In its establishment, back in 1974, UMinho sought to set up its strategy taking into consideration the socio-economic characteristics of the region and paying attention to emerging fields of knowledge with major potential for development and consolidation of the small and medium enterprises that constitute the majority of Minho’s economic fabric. By the time, informatics was such an emerging academic field. At UMinho informatics emerged associated to the areas of industrial management and control, areas that gave origin to several degree programs and departments related to computers and to informatics.
Informatics at UMinho
UMinho has been the first Portuguese university to offer a full degree program in Informatics in the country. It is not surprising, thus, that informatics is an important area at UMinho, with more than 10% of its students enrolled in degree programs in the area. UMinho currently offers five initial degree programs in informatics or somehow related to computers, namely: Informatics Engineering (integrated master); Engineering and Management of Information Systems (integrated master); Telecommunications and Informatics (integrated master); Industrial Electronics and Computers (integrated master); Computation Sciences (bachelor). The annual intake of new students for these programs amounts to close to 400. The offer of postgraduate programs includes several master programs (information systems; informatics; entrepreneurship in information technologies and services; technology and digital arts; bioinformatics; law and informatics; engineering of networks and telematics services; management of engineering projects) and several PhD programs (Information Systems and Technologies; Informatics (in cooperation with universities of Porto and Aveiro); Telecommunications (in cooperation with universities of Porto and Aveiro); Electronics and Computers Engineering).
Several departments are associated to this educational offer. Not just the departments more related to the informatics and computers (Informatics, Information Systems, and Industrial Electronics) but also departments from other schools like the Mathematics and the Biology departments from the School of Sciences, the School of Law; and the Management department from the School of Economics and Management (this School is an important contributor to the integrated master in Engineering and Management of Information Systems, taking care of most courses in the areas of economics, organizational sciences and management).
The Department of Information Systems
The academic interests of the Department of Information Systems are related to the adoption and use of information technology (IT) in organizations and society. They address two concerns: (1) those related to the development and improvement of socio-technical units (work units, processes, organizations, businesses, society sectors); (2) those related to the construction of IT applications capable of addressing the needs of the contexts where they will be used or to enable new forms of setting up work structures.
In order to accomplish its academic mission the Department of Information Systems combines academic approaches adequate to the socio-technical nature of its interests. On one hand the technological approaches associated to the development of IT products. On the other hand the approaches adequate to deal with the human and social facets inherent to the study and interventions in phenomena where humans are central.
The Department of Information Systems has around 35 faculty members. Most of them hold a doctoral degree and are in a tenure track. A few of them, collaborating with the department in a part time basis, are recruited among reputed IST professionals. The department has also six collaborators with administrative and technical duties.

The portfolio of educational offer promoted by the Department of Information Systems in the information systems and technologies (IST) area – TSI@UMinho, http://tsiuminho.dsi.uminho.pt/ – covers all levels of higher education. Initial training of IST professionals is achieved through the integrated Master in Engineering and Management of Information Systems. This program has its roots in an early program created in 1990. Challenges from keeping up with constant evolution of IST professional training and the demands of adjusting higher education programs to the new principles and rules for higher education have been addressed through several changes in the program structure. Besides this IST initial training program, the TSI@UMinho portfolio also includes the following programs: Master in Information Systems; Master in Information Services and Technologies Entrepreneurship; Doctoral Program in Information Systems and Technologies.
TSI@UMinho students are offered a broad range of possibilities in what concerns international mobility and cooperation. The department has mobility agreements with a large set of partners from several countries and promotes the affiliation to networks whose thematic motivation might facilitate the exchange of students (e.g., ERCIS, IS-LINK, AIS Student Chapter@UMinho).
Research and outreach
R&D activities are central to the university vision assumed by the UMinho, the Engineering School and the Department of Information Systems. Therefore it is a concern of the department to ensure that there are R&D programs that address the development of the IST body of knowledge and the application of this knowledge to whatever problems and situations where it might be beneficial.
The R&D activities in information systems and technologies encompass a broad range of research topics and problems, such as:
Studies of phenomena related to the adoption and use of IT;
Studies of phenomena that involve the use of information;
Studies of IT impact on organizations and society;
Development of methodologies and tools to support organizational intervention activities;
Studies and experiments of IT tools to support different activities with special emphasis on knowledge work;
Development of innovative IT products based upon emergent technologies.
Providing services to the community is also viewed as an important academic activity as it is an opportunity to contact with real world situations that constitute potential R&D cases. This is particularly relevant due to the fact that the nature of most problems addressed in the IST area does not allow their study in laboratorial settings.
Research - the ALGORTIMI R&D centre
Research activities in the information systems and other informatics-related fields are carried out in the ALGORTIMI R&D centre. ALGORTIMI is a UMinho’s research unit funded by the Portuguese agency for science and technology. It combines basic, applied and translational research in a broad range of areas that include: information systems, software, multimedia, communications, networks, pervasive computing, electronics, operations research, statistics. Most researchers of ALGORITMI centre are also faculty in four departments of the schools of engineering: Information Systems; Informatics; Production and Systems; Industrial Electronics.
ALGORITMI organizes its activities along two dimensions. On one dimension (research lines) R&D activities are aligned with the areas of the departments associated to the centre mentioned above. On the other dimension (research strands), activities focus on a selection of societal challenges, namely: wealthy and innovative industry; sustainable and smart cities; healthy and secure people; resilient and agile organizations.
Research in Information Systems and Technologies
Information Systems and Technologies (IST) is a research line close to the interest of the Information Systems Department. It embraces three research groups: i) Information systems and technologies for the transformation of organizations and society; ii) Advanced and intelligent technologies for information systems; iii) Engineering and management of the development process of software-based information systems.
The first area addresses the adoption, use and exploitation of Information Technology to enhance desirable organizational and societal traits, namely collective intelligence, agility, resilience, transparency and citizen empowerment. The second area focuses on adaptive systems that use data to enhance individual, group or organizational work or to enable new work practices and structures. Finally, the third area addresses the processes of building and deploying information systems. It covers both the engineering and the management dimensions of the development process. The three groups are highly complementary and interdependent, acting as a crosscut research agenda for stimulating cooperation when addressing specific IST research topics, such as: business intelligence & process management, information services, information systems security & audit, knowledge management, semantic web & scholarly communication, and sustainable development of organizational software.
The IST R&D line covers the full range of research activities that precede innovation, including basic, applied and translation research. The addressed phenomena include Information Technology (IT artifacts, methods and conceptual tools and also the behaviour of individuals, groups, organizations or even societal phenomena. This diversity of research activities and phenomena of interest leads to a diversity of research methods, which is likely to include: case studies, field studies, field experiments, surveys, laboratory experiments, computer simulations, action-research, proof-of-concept, benchmarking, panels of specialists, and Delphic studies.
By addressing complex questions that bring together all the dimensions of the issues at stake, IST researchers contribute to a more dynamic development of research and education activities targeted at the information systems and software industries, which can spill over to society at large and result in sustainable and inclusive growth and quality of live through a more productive use of IT.

The Department was established in 1955 as the Department of Industrial and Business Management (IBM) at the Taiwan Provincial College of Engineering, which had then become the Taiwan Provincial Cheng Kung University in 1956. The College of Business was founded later in the same year. The Department of IBM has belonged to the College of Business since then.
In the initial stage, the courses offered by the Department were strongly related to a standard curriculum of mechanical engineering. For meeting the educational requirements, in 1965 the Department was subdivided into the Industrial Management Division and the Business Administration Division. The Industrial Management Division focused on the knowledge of mechanical engineering and quantitative management, whereas the Business Administration Division initiated additional courses focused on the strengths of qualitative management.
In August 1971, the University was renamed as the National Cheng Kung University. One year later, the original two divisions were further separated and became the Business Administration Department and the Industrial Management Department, respectively. The Industrial Management Department started its undergraduate program in 1973 and then was renamed as the Industrial Management Science Department after one year. As the objective of the Department was to provide managerial personnel with engineering skills, students enrolled should possess good understanding of mathematics and science. Accordingly, the Department has been listed in the Natural Science Section in the Joint Entrance Examination of Universities since 1974.
A doctoral program was eventually initiated in 1991, followed by a master’s degree program specifically designed for working professionals one decade later. To help meet the increasing demands placing on it, the Department was expended to attract teachers and researchers in information management and promote the collaboration between its original strengths. Correspondingly, the Department was renamed as the Department of Industrial and Information Management in 2003.

Management Information Systems (MIS) is a (comparatively) young, interdisciplinary science. The fast progressing digitalization of enterprises due for instance to the omnipresence of the internet and mobile technologies and their pervasive use, results in a plethora of digital services and information providing the base for the development of a wide range of novel products and services, offering a myriad of opportunities for innovations.
Such developments are focused by MIS, dealing, on the one hand, with entrepreneurial topics by means of information technologies and supporting, on the other hand, organizational processes. Moreover, technical realities are analyzed and assessed in view of feasibility, practicability and economic issues. Today information systems are the enterprises’ “backbone”, impressively demonstrated by internet companies such as Google or Amazon. What is more, new technological developments open up market potentials and opportunities for enterprises. MIS sees information systems from an integral view dealing with both the entrepreneurial challenges and the users of new information technologies. Therefore, one focus of the MIS programs is on the topics Internet Business and IT Security.

The business and information technology department combines two of the factors most critical to a successful organization: knowledge of business disciplines and information technology expertise. As a student in the program, you’ll develop a firm foundation in finance, operations, marketing and information technology, whether majoring in business and management systems or information science and technology.
Businesses today face new challenges in structuring their organizations and managing their operations to meet global competition. Goods and services are increasingly produced by world-wide networks of firms, using modern information technology to share information and coordinate activities. To be successful in this information-centric environment, companies must make investments in systems and technologies that maximize the value of their information assets. The principles and techniques covered in the MIS department's programs in information systems (IS) and supply-chain management (SCM) are crucial as companies work to define and execute a twenty-first century business strategy.
Because of the imperative for companies to invest in information systems, there are more people in the U.S. working in information technology today than ever before. The career prospects are outstanding for students who learn how IS and SCM investments interact with business strategy, and who can apply the best tools and technologies to the planning and execution of business processes. At the executive level, these skills are fundamental to the Chief Information Officer (CIO) position, which is responsible for assuring alignment between a firm's IT strategy and its overall business strategy; and the Chief Operating Officer (COO) position, which is responsible for maximizing the value captured from a firm's activities. At the entry level, there are challenging and rewarding opportunities in systems analysis and design, project management, database administration, network management, and information security. Knowledge of information systems and supply chains is frequently a prerequisite for holding a decision-making position within an organization. Our programs provide the foundation to succeed in these careers.

Master Studies in Biology - Focus Ecoloy and Evolution
Global change induces alterations in essentially all of earth’s ecosystems. For example, anthropogenically caused climate changes and the substantial, direct effects of the human population on ecosystems are responsible for a decrease in biodiversity and an increase in natural resource limitation. The scientific disciplines ecology and evolution focus research on elements, structures, functions and changes within our biotic environment. Only a deep and scientifically based understanding of ecological and evolutionary processes will make possible the conservation , protection and sustainable use of biodiversity and natural resources.

The University of Bamberg’s Information Systems degree program stands on nearly three decades’ tradition. First established in 1987, it was only the third such program in Germany. In line with the accords of the Bologna Process, the diploma programs offered in Information Systems were expanded in the Winter 2004/05 semester to include bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
As an academic field, Information Systems addresses the structural and behavioral characteristics of information systems, the procedural methods for developing and operating these systems, and the economic and social implications of their operation. The degree program is thus linked both to the academic disciplines of economics, computer science, and business administration and management.
The bachelor’s degree program in Information Systems aims to develop students’ ability to apply academic methods to solve problems arising in the field, including those of an interdisciplinary nature, and continue to develop these methods. A further goal is to equip students to engage in their own continuing education independently, as is often required to keep pace with the field’s continual, dynamic development. Studies in Information Systems are oriented both towards method and application, and they prepare students for a variety of professional paths. The elective options built into the program allow students to develop individually specified areas of focus.
In today's society business is becoming increasingly complex. Companies deal with daily huge amount of data generated by numerous sources. This situation causes a high demand for professionals with skills in information management, which have to be able to use the latest techniques and analytical tools to support the decision making process.
A degree in Information Management aims at information professionals with strong analytic skills, able to collect, organize and analyze information from organizations, translating them into a strategic resource that allows them to innovate to develop competitive advantages and provide new market trends. The multidisciplinary nature of this course is tailored to the requirements of national and international labor market. The shortage of professionals in this area is significant in Portugal, but also internationally. To get a sense of the potential inherent to this profession, the predictions of The McKinsey Global Institute indicate that in the US alone there, in 2018, a shortage of about 200,000 skilled in information management area, as well as 1.5 million managers and analysts with expertise in this area.
Dubbed as the sexiest profession by the American magazine Forbes century, this multidisciplinary training in Information Management, the Information and Knowledge Society did emerge, allows rapid integration of our students in the management structure of the various sectors of organizations activity.
The University of Turku, Turku School of Economics and the University of Passau, Department of Business Administration and Economics coordinate their Master’s degree programmes in Information Systems in order to enable outstanding students to obtain a degree from each institution.
The programme focuses on topics in Digital Enterprise Management (DEMA), which is comprised by two modules:
- The Networked Business & Digital Ecosystems module focuses on economic and technical aspects of today’s networked and digital business environment. Students learn about digitally enabled organizations, and how they benefit from advanced data management and digitalized, networked business platforms to improve performance of networked business ecosystems. Moreover, they learn about economic and technical aspects of digital ecosystems as well as information and communication technologies.
- The IT Management module focuses on the design, delivery, and implementation of IT services, applications and infrastructure to align business needs and IT security requirements in networked organizations. Special attention is paid to the management of complexity of IT-assets and networked business by means of enterprise architecture management and governance. The students learn to define IS services to support business processes and knowledge sharing, and to manage multi-party implementation projects. Students also develop their ability to understand the significance of business networks for software industry as well as methods to address ethical and responsibility issues related global businesses.
The MCIS is offered in two formats, full-time and part-time. It can also be done by Dissertation only or (more usually) by Coursework and Dissertation. Details of this second approach are now discussed. The formats are identical except in regard to the timing of the dissertation. Students who want to finish all their coursework and dissertation work within a single calendar year will sign up for the full-time format; otherwise they will take an extra year to focus exclusively on their dissertations. Details of the program follow.
The program has a number of taught modules, 4 technology projects, and a dissertation. These are discussed separately below:
- A research methodology component to guide you through the steps of doing your thesis. This component should be pretty much completed by the end of the first semester. The prescribed book for this is "Applied Business Research" by Cavana et al, Wiley (Australia), ISBN 0471341266. It is fairly expensive but the only prescribed text for the year.
- A critical reading component including an introduction to research and critical thought in Information Systems Critical thinking, theory, scientific theory generation and testing, critique of research papers, writing research papers, reading and reviewing research articles, the sociology of research in information systems, important research streams, challenges to IS research, the culture of research.
- An advanced content component consisting of selected topics of interest to students centered around the research interests of current IS staff and academic visitors.
- A set of student-driven seminars whereby students individually present and (as a group) critique topics of their choice or as assigned.
The research methodology module lasts about 5 months. The critical reading and advanced content modules take place concurrently and more or less evenly spread throughout the academic year. Already during the initial ten-month program, students are encouraged to work on their dissertations. FT students should commence their research by May of the year they begin if they intend to complete their data gathering by the start of the second year. PT students will not normally commence their research until the second year of their program. During the second year, full-time (and, where appropriate, part-time) students will present the progress of their research at regular meetings to provide guidance and to share experiences with other students.

Graduates of this programme are ready to work in the area of information security and related fields in both private and public sector organisations as managers, advisors and specialists providing professional and expert know-how.
Information security is primarily concerned with the protection of information assets. Today, most of the information resides in - and is communicated via IT systems. Hence, these systems need to be protected from various threats and attacks. The goal of information security is to protect with respect to the information its confidentiality, integrity and availability. Naturally, it all depends on the business needs and legal requirements. The area of information security is both exciting and overreaching since it also entails the protection of the essential and critical cyber infrastructure, trying to prevent or solve a wide range of computer crimes and other illicit activities, as well as protecting human rights, freedom and democracy. One of the many objectives is to devise new methods and strategies for cyber readiness and defence.
