Business Informatics (MSc)

Business Informatics is an integrative discipline that combines business administration with information technology and computer science enabling the graduates to provide efficient IT solutions to organisational issues and processes.

In line with this, it is a so-called interface discipline that is open to other disciplines. Graduates are able to understand the effects of information systems and to look into the ways how to optimise the design of application systems of digitized organisations on their road to full automatization. Specialists in Business Informatics can work both in research and in business, since they are capable of systems analysis and organisation, business & information systems engineering and (information) system development.

The curriculum of the master’s programme in Business Informatics was developed by experts from the John von Neumann Faculty of Informatics (NIK) and the Keleti Károly Faculty of Business and Management (KGK), as well as industry experts. Within the modern, digitalisation-focused, complex professional programme, the KGK is responsible for teaching economics, while the NIK is responsible for teaching IT. The financial technologies (FinTech) specialization is taught by industry experts.
