Technology, Information & Management
Information systems are an essential part of corporate strategy. With this in mind, the courses and training provided by the Technology, Information & Management (TIM) department have been designed to meet the expectations of companies looking to recruit employees whose skills match their specific needs, as well as the wider needs of the employment market in the age of digital transformation.
The TIM department operates at the interface of technical, economic, human, social and managerial disciplines. Our teaching, research and development activities generate continuous interactions between computer science, engineering, management and organisational sciences.
The department develops its skills and expertise around five key areas:
- Information systems engineering: associated processes and techniques, project management support, project management, cyber security policy, etc.
- Processes and integration: process management, collaborative systems, integration policy, enterprise resource planning (ERP)
- Business Intelligence: decision-making information systems, knowledge management, artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems, cognitive systems, economic intelligence, big data governance and management (Big Data Analytics)
- Information systems governance: information systems strategy, information systems design and management, information systems auditing
- Digital transformation: techno stress, digital intelligence, corporate digital maturity, project agility, design thinking, new remote work and management practices, emerging technologies (AI, Blockchain, IoT, Quantum computing, etc.) and transformations in teaching and learning approaches.
The department is in charge of 4 specialisations for students in the 3rd year of the Grande Ecole Programme:
- Information Systems Engineering
- Information Systems Auditing and Consulting
- Information Systems Consulting and Management (degree apprenticeship programme)
- Business Information Systems for the Digital Era (degree apprenticeship programme and taught in English)
The TIM department also runs a Specialised Masters (MS) course in Business Information Systems: the MS in Information Systems Consulting and Management.
It also contributes to the design and delivery of the specialisation in Information Systems for Finance run by the DEFI department, as well as the Executive Masters in AI for Innovative Managers.
In order to carry out its activities, the department calls on the skills and expertise of a team of 14 professors, a management assistant and part-time lecturers who offer our students the benefit of their practical experience and insights into the world of business.
The department’s doctoral students play an active part in these activities. The TIM department also welcomes Engineering School, Research Masters and Professional Masters students on placement at the end of their studies, apprentices, visiting professors on sabbatical or study leave and post-docs.
Professors in the department are all members of the SMART BIS team and make an active contribution to its IS Lab innovation support laboratory, a research centre that focuses on real-world business challenges.
