Our students, staff and alumni about the International Master in Management of IT
Student Slav Kissiov from Bulgaria
I decided to follow the International Master in Management of IT because of its international exposure. It prepares students for the dynamic environment of international organizations. The structure of the IMMIT program is very well-established: in the first semester students focus on business courses, the second on ICT, and the third on IT and business integration. People will find something valuable in every stage of the IMMIT program depending on their background.
I am currently at the last semester of the IMMIT
program which takes place in Tilburg. The first year the
program took place in France and Finland, one semester each.

Alumna Merie Joseph Kannampuzha from India
Currently working as a doctoral student at Jyväskylä University funded by
the Finnish Foundation for Economic Education
"The reality of the program proved to be even more exciting and life changing than I could ever dream of. Imagine three different universities, three different teaching styles and three Master degrees and mix it up with our cohort of 20 classmates from 13 different countries across four continents and you will start to get the picture. We met as strangers in France, moved together and closer in Finland and became great friends in the Netherlands."
Alumna Dyuthi Nair from India
Currently working at Shell as Business Analyst
"The truth is, there is a huge world of opportunities out there where multi-national companies are looking for exactly that right blend of skills in individuals who understand IT, but can understand business as well - and have a flexible personality that allows operating in international/multi-lingual contexts.
The live proof of that was just the number of companies that were interested in my CV and those of my peers when we finally began scanning for internships in our third semester. I have finally found my place in Shell where I utilize everything IMMIT has done for me - in terms of personal and professional development, and enjoy a fulfilling start to my career!"
