Study program: Management, Communication & IT (Bachelor)

When I look back at my time at MCI...

...I can say it was absolutely the right decision to do the Bachelor and Master at MCiT. In these 5 years, I have met a lot of fantastic people and new friends. The practical training made it very easy for me to start my professional life and certainly made a significant contribution to my career development.

After graduating from HTL Jenbach (Industrial Engineering and Management), I was looking for a wide-ranging study program with an IT focus. The "Management, Communication & IT" program at MCI offered exactly this combination of subjects I was looking for.

The combination of course contents is unique. This balance between technical IT content on the one hand and business fundamentals on the other is perfect.

How did your studies prepare you for your current job?

My current job seems to have only a limited connection to my studies but I think this shows clearly how varied the possible professional fields with a MCiT degree can be. In my current position, I am responsible for my 5 employees and the production program of our 23 assembly lines including the planning of all prefabrication stages in Langkampfen. Since we carry out our planning with high system support, the IT background I gained during my studies is certainly an advantage that enables me to understand processes in our system and their interfaces in a better way.

In addition, the interdisciplinary way of thinking imparted during my studies significantly simplifies cooperation with other departments within the company.
