You bridge the gap between IT technology, employees and organisations. You map out wishes and requirements, give direction to what is needed and transfer this to the specialists who build the software.

You do this by thinking in terms of both technology and business. You are able to understand, fathom and analyze organizations and people. And you can bring all of this together in improvement proposals, in line with your vision and the vision of a company. For example, you help a company to change in line with new, digital trends. Or you help people with the implementation of automation.

This is the Business IT Consultant study track

During the first two years you discover the broad field of HBO-ICT. At the end of your second study year, you choose one of the three study routes: Software Engineer, Data Science or Business IT Consultant

When you choose the Business IT Consultant route, your internship in year 3 (in the Netherlands or abroad) is dedicated to your chosen study route. In addition, you choose a minor that suits your interests.

In the fourth year, the first semester is devoted to your chosen study route. For example, you get started with a project and follow courses in the field of Business Intelligence and Change Management.

  • Project
    You and your team work on a complex project for a client. The projects you can work on are very diverse. For example, students have worked for a government organisation to develop and implement a complete digital strategy including business intelligence.
  • Courses
    You follow courses, such as:
    • Change management
      You learn how to encourage people to take part in change and you are trained in your conversation skills.
    • Business Intelligence
      You learn what it takes to use business intelligence from a business point of view when managing a company and you will implement this straightaway.

You graduate at a company of your choice.
