Information Systems

Main subject – Information Systems

The digitalisation of society puts new demands on companies. Creating new business models and updating organisational functions, products and services in co-operation with customers requires innovative business leaders with technological insights. In Information Systems, you will develop your analytical skills and study modern business theories that allow for the systematic control of digitalisation. In your studies, you will learn how to solve problems for consumers and companies as well as improve or reshape daily routines and business operations by making creative use of information and technology. This requires knowledge in both economics and information technology. Your work will create knowledge and value for customers and facilitate processes and co-operation between various organisations.

As a major subject, Information Systems will provide you with insights into business models, the development of digital services, data analysis and IT management at an advanced level. You can combine your studies in information technology and other economics subjects to create the career profile you want. At the subject level, some of the courses are given in English, while advanced studies are taught entirely in English. Some of the teaching is done in co-operation with the Turku School of Economics. In a changing world, skills in information technology are becoming increasingly important for economists and Information Systems can also be studied as a useful minor subject.

Digitalisation deals with economic restructuring, the creation of more competitive products, services and organisations by means of innovations in information technology. Digitalisation is not a natural force that just occurs spontaneously. It has to be planned and carefully executed by experts in both information technology and business administration.

In both its research and studies, Information Systems focuses on a combination of skills and material requirements for a successful digital transformation – we change and improve the daily routines of consumers and companies alike. We work in close co-operation with Information Systems at the University of Turku in the following areas:

  • IT management
  • Data Analysis
  • Development of digital services
  • Business modelling
