Software Systems and Services Management

follow-up master's program (Czech) with specializations

The study program develops unique competence profile of the student based on the intersection of multiple areas of knowledge that are relevant for managing the development of software systems and services, as well as cybersecurity management. A specific feature is a 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 different types with a possible focus on their safe operation or IT services. In addition to developing basic theoretical and technological knowledge and practical developmental skills acquired in the bachelor's study, the content of the follow-up study is extended by other dimensions such as theories and practices of team, project and process management, communication, soft skills and knowledge essential to functioning in economic relations - the basics of marketing, law and others, which especially (but not only) concerns the specialization of service development. The cybersecurity study takes into account aspects of overlapping computer data processing outside of tightly defined system perimeters (e.g. impacting on critical infrastructure), thus enabling a specific multidisciplinary overlap of technical, social and legal aspects in this area.

The graduates find employment in companies and organizations of different sizes and orientation, but they also get the motivation and the possibility of basic preparation for their own innovative business. The strong competitive advantage of the program graduates is the ability to solve complex management-related problems of the development of systems and services for which they can use the acquired skills by the study. Their potential is predestined to hold managerial positions, such as the Chief Information Officer (CIO), project manager, and risk manager. Graduates of the cybersecurity management specialization will find application primarily in companies and institutions that need specialists able to work with relevant coordinating institutions and ensure the management of cybersecurity processes. These are positions as a cybersecurity manager and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).

Specialization: Service Development Management

Services Development Management specialization follows the current large shift from the traditional paradigm of IT design to IT as a service and from product-oriented economy to service-oriented one. Problems and tasks in IT are becoming more complex and the knowledge of IT technology is not sufficient for solving them. A multidisciplinary view is the core of this specialization. Students will gain not only sound IT knowledge (programming, databases, computer security, networks, etc.), but also the skills necessary to understand problems in their complexity (marketing, management, finance or law) as well as necessary communication competencies.
