Business management as studied in the 21st century, that is, within a global society dominated by technologies that provide new services and products supported by the New Technologies, demands a different business vision.
In this context, Software Engineering occupies a role in the value chain of companies, either as a "core" process or as a "support" process, but never disconnected, thus being an intrinsic part of business strategies. This is the reason why Software Engineering should be directed with a strategic vision that recognizes it as a change agent for the organizations themselves and their strategies.
In this sense, Software Engineering demands a different type of leadership, which surpasses the current formal studies of Software Engineering. For this reason, a Software Engineering professional is required with the strategic vision that makes it easier for him to place the software development process with a strategic perspective of his own that he needs as a strategic process, and that he must do so with administration tools that allow him to know and understand that Software Engineering is a management process composed of people and machines.
The Master's program in Strategic Management in Software Engineering (MDEISw), addresses the challenge of training these professionals addressing their essential skills of strategic management and the various infrastructure, modeling and technological management elements of Software Engineering, within a Comprehensive and innovative vision of information technology in organizations, aligned and consistent with the development of a software company, whether it be for production or use of software.
Duration, credit structure and degree
MDEISw is composed of 18 subjects, a Case Study and Resolution, and a Master Thesis. Each subject allows to know and understand the fundamentals of business strategy, people management, and the necessary technologies and their associated applications. The objective is to know and understand how to manage the software when it is a strategic resource from its theoretical, conceptual and historical foundations, to its organizational, social and technological implementation.
The estimated duration of MDEISw is 85 credits distributed as follows: 70 credits of subjects, and 15 credits for the formation of scientific research methodology and preparation of the Final Master Project.
Regarding the distribution of time, it is established that:
- Being a distance Program and not being subject to face-to-face classes, a specific start date is not established, so the student can formalize the enrollment at any time, provided there are places available.
- For academic and learning reasons, there is a minimum duration of the Program of 18 months, counted from the date of delivery of the first volume until the date of receipt of the assessment test of the last subject.
- The maximum time available to complete the Program is 24 months. In this period of time, the student must have successfully passed all the activities evaluated to all subjects, and have passed the Master's Thesis.
