The subject has four faculty positions. Our research is of high international class and is carried out in extensive co-operation with other universities both in Finland and abroad. Our focus areas are new forms of E-business and web collaboration (Open Source, Open Content, Open Access). Our researchers have published widely in international journals and the research is highly cited. We have also hosted important national and international conferences (FinnOA 2004, Elpub 2010).
Our students learn how to plan, procure and implement IT-systems as well as to understand how these are utilised both operationally and strategically in companies. Subject areas such as marketing, e-commerce, IT-strategies and decision support systems are emphasized in our advanced level courses. More information about both Bachelor- and Master courses you find here.
Our former students are well employed in both the IT industry (one alumni is a high-ranking executive with Google) and in jobs related to IT in other industries.
