Master s Information Studies: Business Information Systems (track) – Graduate Schools of Science – University of Amsterdam #business #credit #reports
Master s Information Studies: Business Information Systems (track)
In the interdisciplinary track Business Information Systems (BIS) in the Master’s programme Information Studies you learn how organisations apply Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in decision-making, development and change processes. The track combines organisational theory, innovation theory and knowledge of applying ICT for organisational and societal purposes.
Is Business Information Systems at the UvA the study programme for me?
- you have a background in social sciences (like for instance Business, Media or Policy Studies) and understand the crucial function of information systems/ICT applications in business processes, decision-making and communication
- you have a technical background in ICT (like computer science or artificial intelligence) and appreciate the organisational aspects and organisational behaviour that determine successful application of ICT
- you’re a student with a mixed organisational and ICT background, like a degree in Information Systems or Information Science and want to deepen your knowledge of organisations and ICT
What does Business Information Systems at the UvA have to offer me?
The BIS track focuses on:
- how information systems can be developed and managed in line with organisational or societal goals and all other information systems already in use
- how organisations, products, processes or societal functions can be innovated by ICT application
- how people use information in business processes and decision-making processes
- how effects of ICT on organisations and society can be studied.
The word organisation in this context means business, governmental and entrepreneurial organisations or their networks.
