The Management Skills for Software Engineers (MSSE) has been tailored to the needs of professionals who are interested in interdisciplinary approaches and seek a good foundation for their career advancement. Through the combination of business and management acumen with technical expertise, the msse program is designed to play a key role in preparing the next generation of leaders in the engineering sector in Bulgaria.
At the heart of complex, multi-dimensional organizations, software engineering involves more than just the development of modern information systems. Consequently, software engineers need to move beyond the boundaries of their job-specific expertise and enhance their professional profiles by acquiring managerial and interpersonal competences. Software engineers who aim to be future business leaders should not only possess such multiple skills, but also should be able to translate theoretical knowledge into business practices, engender interdisciplinary dialogues and communicate successfully in an international and intercultural environment.
