ICT Bridge for DMB students


The students will learn about the different ways IT is and can be used in business, from the managerial perspective

Learning outcomes

The DMC students have a very heterogeneous background in information systems and information and communication technologies. They need a foundation course where they learn the language used in the other courses, they learn about recent developments in IT, and they have access to real business problems to find IT solutions for. The students will learn about the different ways IT is and can be used in business, from the managerial perspective. The 5 sp version is intended to those who already have a strong background in Information Systems.
