Master Programme (One Year) in Informatics - Data-driven IT Management

Dear student,

We welcome you to our programme and hope that you will enjoy our courses! Due to changed rules we offer the master programme partly as distance education now. Please be aware that certain restrictions apply regarding campus meetings. More information will be provided during the introductory session in the first week of the semester.

Data-driven information systems are at the heart of our society today. The programme will help you to understand the role and functions of data-driven information systems in organizations. You will learn how such systems are built and deployed in organizations.

The Master’s programme starts on the 30th of August 2021 with courses in Research Methods in Informatics and Trends in Informatics. Between 16th and 24th of August you have to register and also create your Student account, or you may lose your place in it. You will get all detailed information you need about Student account and registration sent to you in August. You will be able to use the learning platform Canvas about two weeks before your courses start, and you will find additional information there.

You will receive lecture and seminar materials on the e-learning platform Canvas and will be able to use resources available through the Library of the University of Borås free of charge. On Canvas, you can also find current information. You can access Canvas at

You will study full-time for one year. The students applying to this programme also come from many countries. As a participant in the programme, you will meet each other, exchange experience and knowledge, and build your own international network of professional contacts.

We once again welcome you to the programme and look forward to seeing you in Borås!

Best regards,
Peter Rittgen, programme director,
