I’m a Master of IT student, Multimedia Designer and E-Concept Developer
I started my Information Technology Master’s degree (ITKO) in 2017 at Aarhus University. This education has a strong focus on the managerial aspect of IT projects including communication with stakeholders and the overall organization of a project and its teams, where agile and SCRUM-based workflows are the main focus. This means that the capabilities acquired at ITKO is not just of technical character but has a focus on management, which can be used in supervising, controlling and consulting work around and in IT projects.
With that said, there is also a great focus on preparing us for working with programmers and other technical staff in some of the subjects taught, such as Programming, System Development and Databases. This gives me and my fellow students a solid foundation for working in the field between hands-on programming teams and management teams, hence creating a firm foundation for optimal workflow and efficiency.
The communications, analytics and marketing parts of ITKO provide us with an eye for business development and strategy, and give us the ability to see the opportunities in the market with a focus on creating value for the costumer as well as the company.
I am currently writing my Master’s thesis on consultant networks, professional virtual communities and knowledge management.
I will finish my Master’s degree in June 2019.
