COURSE DESCRIPTION

In undergraduate Business Informatics program students gain comprehensive expertise in the fields of computer sciences and in business and management. The business word is dominated by the need to analyse information and hence to make appropriate decision. This means setting up processes to identify the information requirements of an organisation and to analyse data so that appropriate decisions and strategies can be adopted.

This field of study will give you a sound foundation in information systems from the basics of management information systems to dedicated decision support, database and expert systems.

Studying business as part of the course allows students to gain a firm understanding of the role of business in society and develop knowledge of the main functional areas.

A key aim of our programme is to combine academic knowledge with transferable skills in order to enhance employability
