Why a Bachelor in Information Management at the University of Fribourg?

Orientation of the studies 
The Bachelor in Information Management at the University of Fribourg provides a high quality fundamental education in information management. In addition to typical information management topics such as information systems, IT project management and IT security, the program includes programming and quantitative methods and in the first and second years in particular, economics and business management. This combination of solid skills in economics and computer science and a good foundation in business and economics are particularly useful and desired in the labor market. 
 
Practical relevance 
A great deal of emphasis is placed on proactical relevance, both in the lectures as well as in independent work. Typically, concrete problems defined in cooperation with companies are addressed in the seminar and in the bachelor thesis.
 
Multilingualism 
Lectures in the bachelor program are given in German and French, and additional material is often provided in English. However, irrespective of the language in which a particular course is taught, students can choose to take the exam for that course in either German or French. Experience has shown that the multilingual aspect of our program helps students acquire valuable language skills which are very useful in practice, particularly in the Swiss and European job markets. 
 
Contact with students and staff 
For new students, for whom a university is still a big and unfamiliar institution, it is important to feel comfortable and well looked after. At the University of Fribourg, you will find that getting to know your fellow students and contacting your professors is easier than in most other universities. Your professors are, of course, highly qualified scientists, just as in all other Swiss universities - the main difference is that at the University of Fribourg they tend to be a bit more accessible than elsewhere.
