The resulting seal of approval certifies that these academic degree programs are of high educational quality. These degree programs are the only internationally accredited university degree program in Business Informatics in Austria.
As in 2011 and again in 2017, the Agency for Quality Assurance (AQ Austria) has once again accredited the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs in Business Information Systems at the Johannes Kepler University Linz for an additional seven years without any further constraints.
Experts in Business Informatics play a crucial supporting role when it comes to integrating management responsibilities in business and administration with technical options in the area of digitization. Academic degree programs in Business Informatics at the JKU successfully convey skills and expertise to shape, drive and responsibly control digitization processes across disciplines. Graduates contribute significantly to an organization’s digital transformation, ranging from strategic development to technical implementation. Business Informatics at the JKU includes the use of English as a technical language during the course of studies, as well as special training that features theory and hands-on practices. Both real-world experts and JKU professors supervise students as they work on various IT projects.
The accreditation commission has certified that in terms of objectives, the profile, and concept, both Business Informatics programs are well designed, preparing students well to pursue professional positions after graduation while also providing strong academic advising services. In addition, certification attests to the JKU’s continuing commitment to ensure the feasibility of studies.
The evaluators pointed out that both programs in Business Informatics can also be completed on a part-time basis.
