We live in an information society. Information systems are not limited to companies, but include all areas of society. That is why Business Informatics at TU Wien deals with information and communications systems in business and society, where both human factors and machine components play a role.

Technical, economic and social aspects must be taken into account for these systems to be successful. All of these aspects play an important role in Business Informatics at TU Wien. IT and economics are combined in both theory and practice. Study is focused on the formal and technical mapping and modelling of operational structures and processes, and on the implementation of corresponding information systems. Students learn how to think analytically and identify contexts.

Upon completion of the Business Informatics bachelor's course, students can go on to take the Business Informatics master's course or one of the eight Information Technology master's courses.

Course content

Business Informatics is concerned with information, knowledge and information processing in organisations and in society. It thus lies at the interface between people, organisations and IT.
The teaching covers information and communications systems in business and in society, and specifically the analysis, modelling, design, implementation and evaluation of such systems. In addition to its primarily IT-orientated approach, the success of such systems relies on due attention being paid to technical, economic and social dimensions. IT and economics are combined in both theory and practice.

Opportunities for graduates lie in the analysis and optimisation of business processes and related information processes, in the planning, realisation and management of information systems, in application-orientated system development, in IT-supported business management on the basis of a unified view of the business and its environment as an information system, and in communicative roles between IT and business.
