Via the Masterclass Internal AuditingBruno Meeus started the Executive Master IT Governance & Assurance in 2015. Bruno started the master’s course motivated by the fact that it would help him to be more professional in practicing his occupation. “I am currently the Internal Auditor ICT for Infrabel, but as of May, I will be taking up the post of ‘Information Security Officer’ for the same company. It is a position that I would not have obtained if it weren’t for this master's program.”


"Enterprise Governance of IT, COBIT and Information Security Management, are just a few of the subjects already empowering me to address this challenge as successful as possible.”

 

In addition to getting him a new job, he can also continue to apply what he’s learned throughout the course on a daily basis. “Currently, Infrabel is at the stage where an Information Security governance structure is a high priority. Hence, the things I have learned about Enterprise Governance of IT, COBIT, Information Security Management, and so on, are already empowering me to address this challenge as successful as possible. Every professor translates theory into practice based on examples from their own experience. This way, we are handed a broad spectrum of possibilities to implement in our own work environment.”

 

“The course gives you a stronger base, which underpins your work. On this solid foundation we, as participants, get the chance to build a strong castle.”

 

Added value 

The following quote particularly resonated with him: “Enterprise Governance of IT is an interaction between processes, structures and relational mechanisms which results in a firm connection between business and IT, encouraging the creation of added value for the company.” The cooperation between IT and business, by extension, is very important. According to Bruno, it already runs a little smoother, but “the hardest part remains persuading the board room”.

The Executive Master IT Governance & Assurance helps you to get ahead and gives you something to build on, says Bruno. “The course gives you a stronger base, which underpins your work. The school provides a solid foundation upon which we, in turn, get the chance to build a strong castle.”

“Don’t even hesitate. Even in the case of experienced people, the program will give you a level of additional expertise you could never hope to simply acquire through your career in such a short period of time.”

Feedback

Bruno is satisfied with what the master’s course has brought for him. The cooperation with his fellow students from very different backgrounds contributed to that as well. “The diversity of the students makes the course even more interesting. During the study, you receive feedback from other participants on their own practical experience and how they would handle certain situations.”

He would recommend the master to anyone, whether for the seasoned professional or the rookie. “Don’t even hesitate, just enroll. Even for people with a lot of experience, the expertise of the professors, and of the fellow students as well, will give you a level of additional expertise you could never hope to simply acquire through your career in such a short period of time.”
