Business Informatics is a Master’s degree programme for business professionals who want to deepen their strategic and managerial expertise through improved information management and better use of business intelligence systems.
Each student plans and implements a development project in/for real business life, typically for their work organization. In doing so, the student’s research, project and change management skills will be enhanced. Networking, team and negotiation skills also improve in the multi-cultural, tied-to-business setting in which this Master’s DP is carried out. This R&D project will be reported as a Master’s Thesis (30 ECTS).
The Master's Degree Programme in Business Informatics is organized so that its participants can combine studying with full-time work. The length of studies is determined by the entry line through which the student gets accepted. For the Master of Business Administration it is 2,5 years; September 2013 - December 2015 for the 2013 intake.
Contact sessions are arranged mainly every other Friday (from 9.00 to 16.15). Occasionally, evening classes or an intensive weekend session may be arranged. Even these sessions take various forms and approaches. A lot is expected from the participants, a lot is also given by the professionals of business and academics lecturing and leading the sessions. Some sessions take place in the facilities of the business companies participating in the network.
As international cooperation deepens, joint sessions with partner universities will be arranged (intensive weeks, study trips, etc). Study abroad options such as Summer School or Winter School will also be introduced via the international partner network. These are expected to bring about agreements on possible joint or double degrees at a later stage.
