About the programme

This Bachelor Programme is a theoretical and practical degree. The object is to provide the student with a broad-based perspective and basis of experience of the key issues and problems facing private and public organisations, especially in terms of the use of information technology.  

The programme is based on a number of courses and teaching methods providing a unique combination of theory and practical experience, and it is divided into modules allowing for credit transfer with other programmes.  Finally, the programme includes six months of internship with a business enterprise or organisation.
The Bachelor Programme comprises different subject blocks:

The economics block covers the economic structure, development and international relations of the society.

The business economics block covers the individual organisation/company or group of organisations/ companies with special emphasis on economic/ financial and organisational issues and relations to the surrounding community.

The computer science block covers maintenance, renewal and development of computer systems for commercial use. The core subjects are Systems Development and Programming.

The ancillary courses block covers courses which are prerequisites for the work in the other blocks and of practical importance for the handling of practical business economic issues.
The function of the internship block (the ‘profession-related’ block) is to ensure practical and successful use of the qualifications acquired during the programme by way of practical projects which are closely connected to a number of organisations acting as ”mentors” of the programme.
