"This two year course provided me with efficient methodologies and useful best practices in IT auditing and risk management. For me, it provided a key to proposing structured and efficient IT management-oriented solutions to my customers. Several sessions, chaired by highly qualified speakers, were also great opportunities to share experience while preparing practical case studies."

"The ICT Audit & Security Postgraduate brought me an in deep view in the area of ICT Audit and security. Prior to following the training my knowledge of ICT Audit & Security was only focused on SAP system. It gave me then strong knowledge to face the CISA and CISM examination which I passed successfully in 2005 and 2006. The Executive Master in IT Governance by a less technical approach brought me more middle and high level management knowledge in the specific area of IT governance and IT value which are useful to efficiently communicate with business responsible and non security oriented senior staff."
