The programme has been developed in collaboration with the Intelligence Research Institute (IRI), a non-profit think tank for proactive threat mitigation studies headquartered in the United States of America. The GISM Master's programme was designed for students that are pursuing a career in the planning, execution, and management of security solutions in diverse domains, from customs and trade to law enforcement, public administration, health, hospitality, and entertainment. It is also meant to address the educational needs of professionals transitioning into careers where they will face diverse information security management challenges. The GISM programme recognizes the need for such professionals to gain intimate familiarity with the societal context of evolving threats and the role that data and analytics play in countering them.
The courses are taught in English and give students a deeper theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of informatics and economics, which will enable them to proactively apply methods and procedures to reduce risks, ensure continuity of operations, and address new challenges in private and public organizations. Students will gain an in-depth insight into current economic and technological perspectives, which provides them the skills to strategically plan and implement emergency measures in situations ranging from global pandemics to natural disasters. The graduates are being prepared to become leaders in information security, planning, management, analysis, and data processing.
The study programme prepares experts especially for conceptual, analytical, and design work in private companies and public administration institutions as a data analyst, information security expert, in IT solutions implementation teams, or as system integrators. The interdisciplinary programme is designed with ICT, quantitative methods, and related social science courses.
During the study, students will have the opportunity to obtain certificates issued by Intelligence Research Institute (a partner institution), as well as certificates in working with statistical software (SAS academic programme), network technologies (CISCO Academy), and information systems (SAP academic programme).
