Management of software systems and services
The study program develops a unique competency profile of the student based on the intersection of knowledge from several areas that are relevant in managing the development of software systems and services, as well as management in the field of cybersecurity. A specific characteristic is the focus on strategic and operational management related to the targeting, design, implementation and operation of software systems and services within the context of organizations and various types with a possible focus on their secure operation or IT services. In addition to developing basic theoretical and technological knowledge and practical development skills acquired in the bachelor's study, the content of the follow-up study is extended by other dimensions, such as theory and practice of team, project and process management, communication, softskills and knowledge essential for economic relations - basics of marketing , rights and more.
The candidate chooses one of the specializations Cybersecurity Management, Service Development Management or Software Systems Development Management.
Graduates find employment in companies and organizations of various specializations and sizes, but they also receive motivation and the possibility of basic training for their own innovative business. A significant competitive advantage of the graduates of the program is the ability to solve complex problems related to the management of the development of systems and services, for which they can use the skills acquired during the study. Their potential predisposes them to hold managerial positions, such as the company's Chief Information Officer (CIO), project manager and risk manager.
Graduates of the specialization in cybersecurity management will find employment mainly in companies and institutions that need specialists able to cooperate with relevant coordination institutions and ensure the management of cybersecurity processes. These are positions as a cybersecurity manager and information security manager (CISO - Chief Information Security Officer).

The Cybersecurity Management specialization takes into account aspects of the overlap of computer data processing outside of fixed system perimeters (eg with an impact on critical infrastructures), reflected in the so-called cyber security and enabling specific multidisciplinary overlap of both technical and social and legal aspects of cyber security.
The specialization follows the current major shift from the traditional paradigm of IT design to IT as a service and from a product-oriented economy to a service-oriented one. Problems and tasks in the field of IT are becoming more complex and knowledge of IT technologies is not sufficient to solve them. A multidisciplinary perspective is the core of this specialization. Students will gain not only good knowledge of IT (programming, databases, computer security, networks, etc.), but also the skills needed to understand problems in their complexity (marketing, management, finance or law) and the necessary communication competencies.
Meet a successful graduateGirls have unnecessary barriers to IT
Graduate Dita Přikrylová left her job as a data analyst and works for the non-profit Czechitas. She wants to get more women into IT.
The specialization is focused on software engineering, ie on acquiring the knowledge and skills needed in all stages of development, management and modification of information systems and other large-scale software systems. Emphasis is placed on the knowledge needed in the analysis and specification of system requirements, system design and its implementation and deployment.
