At the Business Administration and Information Systems MSc course from the Copenhagen Business School (CBS) you learn how to use information and information technology to add value to companies and organisations. 


In this Business Administration and Information Systems MSc course from the Copenhagen Business School (CBS) you will gain an understanding of the company and learn to analyse its needs providing the background for designing and implementing specific IT solutions. You will learn how IT affects the organisational structure and financial results of a company – and how the organisational needs and economic reality creates possibilities and constraints on the IT architecture.

You will learn how to box in the problems of a company – reducing the complexity and making it possible to analyse, create and implement IT solutions. And you will learn to think outside the box – and thereby not only find more effective ways of doing things but also create new solutions to old problems.
