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.

Information systems are always present in our daily lives, even if we don’t realize it. We use intelligent systems, connectivity services, web equipment and data integration on those devices that we know as computers, tablets, and smartphones.

With an Information Systems degree, graduates are expected to have a set of skills that allows them to plan and organize all the data processing, storage and retrieval, as well as designing and building IT APPS, or creating and managing a computer network or other information systems.

These students will also acquire a set of tools regarding business processes such as E-Business, Supply Chain Management (SCM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) e Customer Relationship Management (CRM), all areas of expertise that are key to create value in companies.

This is why the Information Systems undergraduate degree is an innovative and multidisciplinary educational program that meets the high demands of both national and international markets

Tiago Oliveira is an Associate Professor of Information Management and Associate Dean for Research and Doctoral Studies at the NOVA Information Management School (IMS), Coordinator of the Ph.D. in Information Management, and Coordinator of the degree in Information Management. He was academic visitor at the Information Systems Department, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA.

He received his PhD degree in Information Management from Universidade Nova de Lisboa (UNL), Portugal in 2011. He also received Master degree in Statistics and Information Management from NOVA IMS, Portugal, in 2006 and a degree in Industrial Engineering and Management from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Universidade Técnica de Lisboa (UTL), Portugal, in 2001. Before joining academia he worked in the Private Sector as a Product Management and Account Management in the largest Portuguese Information Technology Company, Portugal Telecom.

His research is driven by the vision to marry information technology (IT) with the process of innovation diffusion (initiation, adoption, use, and value) across all adoption units (individuals, firms, and societies). With this research I intend to shed transcending on the most important antecedents of IT innovation, being capable of developing new toolkits for emerging IT. In the last five years I have worked on IT adoption models. For individuals as adoption units, I am interested in understanding what drives the adoption of e-health, e-banking, m-banking, and m-payments. At firm-level, I first focused on Internet adoption, followed by e-business adoption, enterprise resource planning (ERP) use and value (in collaboration with Microsoft Corporation), cloud computing adoption stages, and cloud computing value (also with Microsoft Corporation and SAP). Another field of interest is the e-government and e-participation adoption by citizens. I am also interested in assessing the role of IT in the development of countries and understanding the digital divide. I developed for the European Commission a framework for improving the level of cross-border e-commerce within the European Union.

His research has been published in several journals including including the Information & Management, Decision Support Systems, Government Information Quarterly, Computers in Human Behavior, Journal of Business Research, Information Systems Frontiers, International Journal of Information Management, Journal of Global Information Management, Industrial Management & Data Systems, Computers in Industry, International Journal of Accounting Information Systems, among others.
