This field of study follows the current large shift from traditional paradigm of IT design to IT as a service and from product-oriented economy to service-oriented one. Masaryk University offers this Master in Service Science, Management, and Engineering.


Problems and tasks in IT became more complex and knowledge of IT technology is not sufficient to solve them. Multidisciplinary view is the core of this field of study. Students will obtain not only deep IT knowledge (programing, databases, computer security, networks, etc.), but also skills necessary to understand problems in their complexity (marketing, management, finance or law) and necessary communication competencies.

  • analyze, desing and implement IT projects as service systems;

Graduate employment

Graduates usually can enter junior manager positions or work on design and development of service systems or innovating them. They can assert themselves in positions which require quick orientation in problems of multidisciplinary nature and co-create value between a customer and an IT service provider. Excellent students may seek PhD studies as the faculty. Some graduates may develop their own commercial projects that were formed during their studies.
