Question

How can I break the wall and get a position in the IT Strategy area? I am currently looking for possible studies, but have not found something like a MBA oriented for students graduated in Computer Sciences. I really appreciate any advice in order to plan the next steps in my professional development.
Hallo,

Die besten Jobs von allen

I studied Systems Engineering and have been working in Germany (no EU citizen) for 3 years. After my graduation in 1998 I have been working as a programmer for web applications (B2C) and currently coordinate a web project.To be a developer does not fulfill my professional expectations. I would like to focus on the IT-strategy area, my dream is to proposed IT solutions for the improvement of business (enterprise) processes.The question is: How can I break the wall and get a position in the IT Strategy area? I am currently looking for possible studies, but have not found something like a MBA oriented for students graduated in Computer Sciences. I really appreciate any advice in order to plan the next steps in my professional development.Thanks a lot,woman@it
Answer from Oxford:HiThank you for your e-mail. The Oxford MBA is a generalist degree covering all management disciplines - it is not specifically for those with a computer science degree. I'm afraid I can't help you, why don't you check out 'MBA in IT' on the web? Good luckBest wishesAlison OwenAnswer from Cranfield:It sounds from your description of your work experience, that you need to move a little further up the career ladder before you would qualify for an MBA. In any case, an MBA is of most use to people who wish to move out of a particular industry or job function into a more general management role. You might do better to look for a specialist masters programme. This web site is very useful for UK programmes: www.hotcourses.comMaureen Williams Answer from Ashridge:Thank you for your enquiry.At Ashridge, we not only offer electives, but also the opportunity to undertake a live, practical project. This project usually focusses on a candidates chosen area of interest. We hope this helps.MBA AdmissionsAnswer from Cambridge:Thank you for your question.I will preface my remarks by saying that I am NOT a careers adviser, only someone who markets our MBA programme.Certainly an MBA would provide you with the broader business skills necessary for a move from a technical position to a more strategic post but for a more definitive answer you shopuld really consult a careers adviser.RegardsLouise
