Course structure/Mobility Scheme

IT4BI is a two-year Masters programme offered by 5 higher education institutions. Students will visit at least two different countries during the first three semesters, and will then have the opportunity to choose where they wish to do their Master thesis during the fourth semester.

 

Next figure describes the possible mobility schemes, according to courses proposed by each partner institution.

The first year is devoted to fundamentals, where the first semester is offered at ULB and the second at UFRT. After this first year, all students participate in the Business Intelligence Summer School, which will be hosted and organized annually by one partner of the consortium. For the third semester, students choose a specialization among three offered in the programme and move to the partner offering this specialization. The fourth semester is dedicated to the Master's Thesis and can be realized at any partner institution (whether full or associated partner).

 

Eventually, all students will be gathered in the final event “Master’s Theses Defences and Graduation Ceremony”, which will be organised annually by one partner of the consortium. The master's Theses will be defended and the event will be followed by the graduation ceremony.

 

Upon completion of the programme, the students receive a multiple diploma (ULB, UFRT and the university of the specialization). They will receive a joint diploma from selected institutions.
