Management in the digital age

Focus on information management
and digital transformation

The demand for managers and executives who work at the interface between IT and management and possess an overall understanding of both areas is growing continually.

The focus of the Executive MBA in Business & IT which takes place at TUM School of Management and the Institute of Information Management at the University of St. Gallen is to educate a new generation of managers of digital transformation. The program provides an overview of business processes throughout the entire organization and equips our participants with the right know-how to understand the most important tools and figures.

Management, however, goes further: communication and leadership skills are vital in today’s world. Our Executive MBA in Business & IT helps you to combine all these aspects and to focus on integration between the sectors of business and IT, thus preparing you holistically for the complex business questions of the future.

As a degree program of TUM School of Management, the Executive MBA in Business & IT is triple-accredited by AMBA, AASCB and EQUIS.
