Major 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.
