«The bachelor’s degree in International IT Management is a very interesting option. ICT is evolving into different, highly specialized units that have the highest possible level of expertise in their branch. As an individual department, company or person, it is not possible to cover all areas. This makes it even more important to be able to work together with different partners. These partners are often not based in your home country. Instead, they are increasingly located in Asian countries such as China, Vietnam and India, or in Eastern Europe. Contractual negotiations with people from China are absolutely opposite to those carried out in western countries. Communication must take place in other languages and be supported with suitable tools. All this requires a degree program that goes far beyond that seen in “normal” IT studies.» Dr. Patrick Brigger, getAbstract AG, Co-Founder & CTO

«The bachelor’s degree in International IT Management is a very promising course that meets the demands of business both now and in the future. The graduates should be able to make their mark in constantly changing technical and cultural surroundings. Mastering technological and cultural challenges requires a special set of skills.
