IT and Economics


The IT and Economics programme is offered by Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in collaboration with the Copenhagen Business School (CBS). It is an interdisciplinary programme that provides students with broad-based knowledge of a specialist technical field while teaching them about business economics, organization and management.

360° understanding
The BEng programme in IT and Economics is aimed at companies that need engineers with a 360-degree understanding of both the production-related and commercial aspects of a business. These key skills are highly sought after in industry.

Internet technology and business economy

In the course of the programme students acquire a range of sound professional skills in software development. The technical courses are supplemented with various subjects from the BSc programme in Economics and Business Administration at CBS in order to give the students an understanding of the commercial side of things. With modules on business economics, financial management and commercial law, they gain a detailed insight into the conditions in which industry operates, as well as a profound understanding of the close relationship between development, production, sales and marketing in a technology company. All told, around one sixth of the programme takes place at CBS.

Highly job oriented

Students gain practical experience of development methods for IT systems, user friendliness, design and object-oriented programming. They are introduced to the various forms of communication—both wireless and non-wireless—and learn how to connect them to larger communication networks. Students also have the opportunity to work on the design of user interfaces and functionality in multimedia applications—including the latest WEB technologies. Teaching alternates between lectures, classes and project work.

Bright prospects
The programme has been designed in cooperation with the heads of prominent companies, who know what skills are required in a modern IT company. Sound knowledge of IT and business is now a highly sought-after combination on the job market, so graduates have an excellent chance of getting an interesting job in industry.
