Bachelor in

Informatics and Management of Digital Business

This trilingual Bachelor of Science is a joint programme offered by the Faculty of Computer Science and the Faculty of Economics and Management. It combines interdisciplinary business management expertise with knowledge of computer science.

Course description

The aim of this course, which is unique in its form in Italy, is to train specialists in tasks which interface across information and communication technology (ICT) and other fields of business activity. Students acquire the necessary skills to solve IT problems alongside economical issues.

Students master the tools needed to understand and deal with computer-related problems and to successfully carry out business activities. They might specialise in digital business by choosing 18 credits in Digital Finance and Financial Markets or in Digital Marketing and Advertising: both subjects reflect interdisciplinary areas of increasing importance that ensure the future viability of this degree.
