About the programme
Business Informatics combines the areas of business knowledge, knowledge of management and social skills as well as business use of information technology. Numerous new companies are conquering the global market through innovative use of contemporary information technology. It embodies much more than mere computing science, informatics or information technology.
As a graduate, you will acquire the highest level of expert competencies in the field of informatics and business. You will obtain practical knowledge of business transformation and digitalisation, the development of new business models and advanced use of information technology in business operations. During the study you can acquire thorough knowledge and skills of business informatics and, by selecting the contents (courses), you can create an area of specialisation that most closely corresponds to your personal, professional and employment ambitions.
1st area: A graduate with a focus on the digitalisation of business operations will acquire the knowledge needed in the areas of developing and introducing information systems, be able to strategically plan digital business, the informatics in an organisation, the information infrastructure and architecture as well as integration systems, model and improve business processes, design the development of solutions, introduce software solutions, ensure their quality and revise them as well as use information tools in the development of software solutions or provision of information services.
2nd option: A graduate with an emphasis on seeking the business opportunities offered by information technology will understand the strategic importance and role of information technology in entrepreneurial ideas, lead digital transformation, plan business models based on novelties created by fast technological changes, plan strategically and redesign business operations as well as establish business processes and direct their digitalisation in big and as well small companies.
The third area of specialisation largely combines the first two in terms of acquired competencies; however, a greater emphasis is placed on managerial skills.
