In September 2013, the IT University of Copenhagen opens a new Master of Science degree program in Digital Innovation and Management (Cand.it. E-Business). The program will offer three specialization tracks:
- Process Innovation and New Business Models
- Digital Governance and Enterprise Architecture
- Global Relations and Work Processes
The second track is of course “my” track. There are two course blocks in the specialization:
- Enterprise Architecture (7,5 ECTS)
This course introduces the basic concepts of Enterprise Architecture and examines its classification, taxonomy, models and framework. The following architecture domains will be covered: Business, information, technology, security, application, software, SOA and their inter-relationships as well as integration of domains and governance. Issues related to strategic planning of Enterprise Architecture, including implementation and planning will also be covered in the course.
- Digital Governance (15 ECTS)
This course introduce different frameworks for digital Governance in private and public organizations, and focuses on analyses how businesses and society deals with challenges and policy problems related to digital governance. The aim is to provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge to critically reflect on questions of governance and policy development in private companies and government agencies. Students will be exposed to leading thinkers and debates in the public, private and community sectors, and will develop capacities to enhance effectiveness in the workplace and gain a better understanding of the way governments and businesses operate. As part of the course the students are expected conduct a project on a course relevant topic.
In addition to two foundational course, IT Foundations (7.5 ECTS) and Business & Management Foundations (7.5 ECTS), the program includes three open courses as well as three mandatory courses:
- Navigating Complexity: Mapping, Visualization and Decision-making (15 ECTS)
- Digital Accountability (7.5 ECTS)
- Innovation and Technology in Society (7.5 ECTS)
These candidates will become very attractive on the job market, I’m sure.
