Programme Structure

The bachelor programme in Global Business Informatics is a three-year full-time study divided into six semesters. Each semester includes both courses and project work, which means that you will be able to apply theory in practice.

The programme is designed so that you gain a thorough understanding of the three central areas: technology, society, and business. The interdisciplinary approach gives you insight into how IT solutions are part of complex organizational and societal structures. During the programme, you learn to identify, analyse, and solve specific problems, and you get to work with organizational theory, global dynamics, and management challenges and acquire tools to bridge the gap between IT and the business world.

The IT University is continuously in dialogue and close collaboration with relevant companies, and through this, offers projects to students. Throughout the bachelor's programme, you develop new methods and technical skills while learning the applied skills within Global Business Informatics.
