Skills produced by the degree programme
The Degree Programme in Business Information Systems enables the students’ growth into ICT professionals. The aim is to train enterprising, collaborative and self-developing ICT professionals in close collaboration with the working life.
Flexible curriculum and diverse focus areas offer the students good opportunities to specialise in the fields they are most interested in.
Focus areas of the degree programme include: digital entertainment and services (e.g. game development) software production and testing, data network and server system services, information security, rapid application and development of new technologies, data systems of the health care industry, working in the customer interface and ICT entrepreneurship.
Business skills have a strong place in the degree programme. This creates a good premise for the students to work in companies in expert tasks or as independent entrepreneurs.
The students begin their studies in teams under the guidance of a coach. In the beginning of studies, the focus is on the basic contents of different ICT focus areas through projects and team learning. The studies also cover the necessary team work skills as well as good written and spoken communication in Finnish and in English.
As the studies progress, the students deepen their skills in the focus areas of their choosing. Working life connections are constantly developed by carrying out projects for different organisations, a 5-month practical training and writing a practical Bachelor’s thesis which demonstrates skills in the students’ own field.
After graduation, the students have excellent employment opportunities either in ICT companies or in various organisations which utilise ICT, depending on the students’ skills profile.
In the Basic studies, the basic abilities of the utilisation of Information Technology are developed in versatile ways. The Basic studies include also communication and language studies.
In Professional studies, the students build their own set of skills from studies of Business Information Systems and supplement them, if desired, by studying abroad, by project studies or studies from other degree programmes. The students must complete at least 70 credits worth of studies in the Degree Programme in Business Information Systems. 15 credits worth of professional studies may consist of professional studies from any degree programme.
The aim of elective studies is to give the students opportunities to study interesting topics from other degree programmes besides the Business Administration degree programmes. The students may select 15 credits worth of university level studies from the whole course selection of TAMK or other educational institutions. The students may complete their elective courses at any time during their studies.
Practical training is 20 weeks of full-time work in a company or an organisation. The aim of the practical training is to familiarise the students with the most important tasks of their field and to enable them to apply their skills in the working life.
The Bachelor’s thesis is a development task related to the practical work.
