The programme taught be how to approach information technology decisions in a business landscape. It develops a broad view of IT, beyond the narrow day-to-day coding problems.
The joint degree introduced me to key areas where IT and business meet, such as marketing, new enterprise development and financial management. I am no financier or HR manager, but I can speak their language and empathise with their aspirations and fears.
For 5 intense years of studying programming, I learned how to speak code as fluently as my mother tongue. This is where my curiosity for IT transformed into understanding and a bit of true love ❤️
