It enables you to link together IT, strategy and management and provides the soft skills you’ll need to tackle computing issues with users and managers alike. The modules that make up the programme are aligned with the most up-to-date certifications, making it as relevant as possible to what is actually happening within the industry. Last but not least, the courses are delivered by enthusiastic and ever-available faculty, which motivates participants even more.

On being appointed Director at DG DIGIT (Directorate for IT Security) for the European Commission, the IT & Information Security Management Education helped me to get up to speed on concepts and techniques in IS and IT Security Management. The course is demanding but the content and quality of the courses were on target for my needs. Also I very much appreciated the strong practitioner-based nature of the course.

Broader security and audit knowledge, extension of my professional network, preparation for CISA and CISSP certification… Providing a solid and complete background, I would recommend to anyone this executive programme, under the great and inspiring guidance of Prof. Georges Ataya.

This education provided me with the right knowledge, experience, networking, and confidence to kick-start my career and to achieve the professional and personal objectives which I had set myself. I felt invigorated, empowered and assertive to grow and to do what I really wanted.

All lecturers at Solvay have been great in providing enormous amounts of information during the evening week sessions. Thanks to all of them, for their commitment, patience and open discussions providing very good knowledge and support.
