Joost van de Koppel recently completed the TIAS Executive Master of Information Management and Digital Transformations (MIMDT). Halfway through the program , he switched from working as an Information Manager at Heijmans Utiliteit, managing large projects and contracts, to a role as Digital Transformation Manager at the same company, bridging the gap between business and IT. “Due to my background in architecture, building and planning, I was already familiar with the business side of things. Now I know the IT side as well and can unite those two worlds.”

Broader, deeper understanding of IT

One of Joost’s reasons to do the TIAS master was to improve his understanding of various IT aspects so as to better fulfill his role as an Information Manager. “I wanted to learn how information systems could help with or even solve business issues. I wanted to delve deeper into how IT and business intersect, to be able to unite those two worlds.” While attending the program, Joost took on a new role as Digital Transformation Manager, making that broader, deeper understanding of IT even more desirable and sensible. Joost: “I wanted to delve deeper into how IT and business intersect.”

Why TIAS?

When searching for the right IT program, Joost decided on the Executive Master of Information Management and Digital Transformations (MIMDT) at TIAS, because the content was a good match for his questions. “The subjects of the various modules were exactly what I wished to learn more about. Furthermore, I believed a longer program would give me a broader understanding of the field. My new role’s wider scope also meant I could put the knowledge acquired during lectures into practice immediately.”
