Recommended Study Schedule 2012, Degree Programme in Information Systems Management

The first semester starts with the methodology studies and planning the personal development path. The thesis specification and planning is strongly recommended to start during the first semester as well. The following table represents a balanced study schedule for the other semesters taking into account the prerequisites of the courses. The credits from the thesis work can be granted in several pieces if appropriate and agreed in the personal development plan. The free-choice studies can be scheduled in any semester according to the personal study plan. Note that the Program Manager Orientation and Service Development Manager Orientation are alternative modules and only the courses of either one are compulsory while the courses of the other module can be included in the free-choice studies.
