All businesses and Organisations develop or buy information systems. While the main purpose of these systems is to store and retrieve information, each system is unique and meets a different demand. In order to build properly functioning systems, it is essential that all requirements of the new information systems are analysed and translated into blueprints for future system implementations. This course will provide you with the necessary insights, and teach you the skills and methodologies to analyse and design information systems.
Graduates have academic, evidence-based knowledge and understanding of theories, methods and tools in business/economics.
Graduates can apply their knowledge and understanding to identify and solve real life business/economic problems. This includes demonstrating analytical skills and a problem-solving attitude.

This course will provide students with the necessary tools & skills to analyse and design an information system. Also basics of data management and data modelling will be part of this course. After completing this course students will be able to translate business requirements into an information systems design. No programming skills are necessary to follow this course. However, good analytical skills are needed.
During the course we will address and apply techniques such as Data flow diagrams, Entity-Relationship diagrams and relational modelling.
There may be lectures on the technical parts of the course or guest lectures to explain the topics in more detail and introduce their real life applications.These lectures will be followed by group sessions in which students apply their knowledge. During most tutorial meetings, exercises will be discussed. These exercises have to be prepared by all individual students. Working in teams or groups on these assignments is fully acceptable, but in no way mandatory. In addition, each student will be involved in hosting one or several tutorial meetings. Finally, the course includes one group assignment which has to be prepared by subgroups of 3-4 students.
