Information Systems In Management are the 2-year MSc studies of overall duration: 4 semesters. All subjects are taught in English. The studies are realized as full-time courses.
The number of the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) points is 120.
The detailed program of the studies:
The specialization of Information Systems In Management, according to the program requirements, is focused mainly on methods of analysis of the economic phenomena. It belongs to the economical sciences. Students are acquainted with the quantitative methods of economic analysis and software tools and their practical application. The graduate is able to combine the available methods and tools into the integrated computer analysis systems as well as to modify existing systems.
The specialization prepares future programmers, designers and analysts of modern information systems that are used in companies. This specialization is focused on the use of high level programming languages, design and programming of the databases, as well as the design and administration of the computer networks.
The graduate has the rudimentary knowledge of the economy, management and finances. He knows methods and mathematical, statistical and econometric tools required for the analysis of the micro- and macro-scale economic phenomena. He is also expected to have the knowledge about the economical informatics, i.e.: the design, programming and deployment of the information systems and the administration of computer networks. Finally, he should be able to make decisions concerning the management of the economic and financial organizations.
The graduate of the studies will have a good command of mathematical, statistical and econometrical methods and tools required to the advanced analysis of economical phenomena in the micro- and macro-scale. He should also be able to make rational decisions in all possible economical companies and organizations. The expected skills include design and implementation of advanced information systems and databases in economical and administration organizations. The graduate should also be able to run the advanced advisory business and to manifest creativity. Finally, the graduate should be prepared to conduct research and to start the third level (PhD) studies.
