About the program

Modern organizations are operating in hypercompetitive environments, constantly monitoring their environment for new business opportunities and striving for stakeholder satisfaction by delivering products and services of unprecedented quality. This has resulted in enterprises that are faced with challenges such as increasing complexity and increasing change. These challenges require high evolvability, agility or flexibility of the organization and its information systems.

As there are obviously no simple solutions, enterprises are looking for advanced expertise grounded in research. In order to meet this demand, Antwerp Management School and Delft University of Technology have established a unique partnership to offer a state-of-the-art Executive Master in Enterprise IT Architecture. This executive master program is built upon state-of-the-art scientific research in the field of ‘enterprise engineering’ at both universities.

The courses provide an overview and scientific evaluation of the enterprise architecture methodologies and systems development methodologies that we know (such as TOGAF, Zachman, Archimate, Unified Process, Agile methodologies …). Next, Normalized Systems Theory and enterprise ontology (DEMO, Design and Engineering Methodology for Organizations) are put forward as important theories in both enterprise and IT architecture, aiming for the establishment of the agile enterprise. Courses are fully rooted in theory with proven practical relevance at first hand.

This program is the only, double accredited master program in the Benelux, delivering a Master of Science certificate in Enterprise and IT Architecture.
