Management and Protection of Information (MPI)


The MPI master’s program is oriented towards the realization of scalable complex software architectures, with a high degree of availability, also ensuring cyber security requirements. Students obtain technical skills – for the development of distributed applications, including Cloud and IoT, Big Data processing, data protection through blockchain technologies – but also management and entrepreneurship skills.

Relevance to the job market

Management and protection of information are essential nowadays for the digitalization of the business environment and public institutions. Graduates of this programme can find jobs in prestigious IT companies, can continue with PhD studies and capitalize on their management skills.

Required knowledge

Typical knowledge from technical bachelor studies: programming languages, hardware / software architectures, computer networks, operating systems, linear algebra.
