The 2IS Master program is designed for Bachelor students in information technologies (IT) aiming to expand their knowledge on innovative information technologies. 2IS is organised by researchers of IRIT (Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse), one of the major French institutes in computer science.

2IS is a MIAGE Master program (Méthodes Informatiques Appliquées à la Gestion des Entreprises), which is the reference Master in France for information technolgy. MIAGE programs are run by more than 20 universities in France.

Innovative information technologies reinvent and transform businesses. Artificial intelligence, big data and web-service orchestration drastically impact end-users as automation is at the heart of business processes.

2IS proposes a unique and broad perspective on innovation in IT in a 2-year program:
-Innovative software solutions such as business intelligence and data visualization, machine learning, collective intelligence distributed databases.
-Innovative software development methods such as agile management and collaborative design.
-Innovation and entrepreneurship in strategy and management.
