Introducing the first MSc in Enterprise Architecture! -
Enterprise Architecture (EA) has emerged in recent years as a new specialization with its own Body of Knowledge, terminology, and core skills. As EA leaves the "slope of enlightenment" on track to become a main stream function [Gartner Hype Cycle for EA 2010], the current shortage of qualified EAs would probably only worsen! Thus, the University of East London, with the support of Iasa, has designed the first MSc in Enterprise Architecture to start February 2013. The programme was designed around Iasa's skills taxonomy and the four pillars. This presentation will provide an overview of the MSc EA, it's structure, and the experience learnt designing the programme.
