BSc in Global Business Informatics 

The three-year BSc programme in Global Business Informatics provides you with the theoretical and practical tools for working with IT in an international business context where both technical, social and cultural understanding is central. The programme is carried out in English.

See why Lasse and Maria recommends Global Business Informatics.

The Programme

The BSc in Global Business Informatics provides you with knowledge on collaboration, IT development and organization across businesses and continents.

IT is constantly creating new business opportunities, but to use them you need both technical and cultural understanding. The BSc in Global Business Informatics focuses on the interaction between IT, people, culture and business, and therefore combines theory and methods from three different disciplines:

  • Technology
  • Business and organization
  • Social Science

While we do not expect you to have extensive knowledge of IT, you should be ready to learn and be interested in an education in an international environment.

Programme Structure

The BSc in Global Business Informatics is a three-year full-time programme divided into six semesters. Each year of the Global Business Informatics programme has an overall theme for both courses and projects.

  • First year (1st and 2nd semester): IT in a social context
  • Second year (3rd and 4th semester): IT in businesses
  • Third year (5th and 6th semester): IT in the global world

IT in a social context focuses on the theoretical aspect of how IT has changed the way we interact, work and spend time together. You will learn how to bridge the gap between technology and people, and how to deal with the challenges you face when developing IT solutions.

IT in businesses deals with organizational theory, basic business understanding, process optimization and information management. You will learn to develop functional IT and work processes for the system end-users in an organization, and you will learn how to make changes in a company to optimise an IT solution.

IT in the global world focuses on the challenges of globalisation. You will deal with the development of IT in a global context with emphasis on cultural and management perspectives. You will, simply put, be working in the cross field between anthropology, sociology and technology.

The teaching method is informal and dialogue-based, and is a combination of lectures, project work and practicals. The emphasis on project work gives you the opportunity to study your favourite subjects in depth, thereby designing your own individual profile.

Global Business Informatics is developed in cooperation with the business community and designed to give you the opportunity to collaborate with companies and organisations on your various projects.

Global collaboration is an important part of the Global Business Informatics programme. The programme is therefore carried out in English and part of the teaching staff has an international background. You will work in groups with students from all over the World. Making this collaboration work in spite of differences is an important part of the programme. As a Global Business Informatics student you will improve your English skills, become part of an international study environment and have an excellent opportunity to create an international network.
