Information and information technology (IT) have increasingly become an integral part of products and services and form the foundation of business processes. Organisations must know how to make the right choices with respect to new IT systems and, at the same time, ensure that existing business processes continue to receive a high quality service from IT. Getting more value from IT is an increasingly important organisational competency. The IMMIT program is designed to address these new Information & Management challenges.
The IMMIT program is a multiple degree program jointly offered by IAE Aix Graduate School of Management, Aix Marseille Université (France), Turku University (Finland) and Tilburg University (The Netherlands).
IMMIT offers you:
- A highly innovative program for top students
- The possibility to earn 3 Master’s degrees from highly reputed European universities in 2 years
- A unique experience in an international classroom that will broaden your views on Business and IT
- Small sized classes
- A strong international orientation
- Internships are offered, which means fast track career opportunities
Upon completion of the IMMIT program, students get three degrees, one from each partner university:
Tilburg University: Master of Science in Information Management
IAE Aix Graduate School of Management, Aix Marseille Université: Master of Sciences in Management & Information Technology
Turku School of Economics, Turku University: Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration
Applicants need to meet the following admission criteria:
- The IMMIT program is open to students with a Bachelor’s or equivalent undergraduate degree (180 ECTS) either in Management, Economics, Business Administration or in Computer Science/Information System. Students with an engineering degree can be admitted if their previous education includes IT and information systems.
- A satisfactory scholastic average, a minimum of 3.0 (B) grade-point average, in course work completed during the Bachelor’s degree.
- Next to your transcript of grades, which lists the courses that you have taken, we need a short description of all the courses that are relevant for your application. You can send these course descriptions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your home university should be able to supply you with a short description of the courses you took during your undergraduate studies. If your home university does not supply this information in English, then we do accept course descriptions written by the student.
- If you are required an English proficiency test, then include an official copy of one of the following English proficiency tests: Academic IELTS (min. 6.5 overall/6.0 on parts), TOEFL (min. paper based: 575, computer based: 233, internet based: 90) or Cambridge Proficiency (information about whether or not you require an English test, can be found under FAQs).
- An official copy of your GMAT test. The average GMAT score of accepted students is 600. Or an official copy of your GRE test score. Our incoming students usually score above the 75% percentile on the quantitative section.
- Students with a relevant Bachelor degree from one of the partner institutions of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management, IAE Aix-en-Provence and Turku University do not need to submit the GMAT/GRE test score. For all other applicants, the GRE or GMAT test is compulsory.
- A printed copy of the completed and signed application form.
