Besides the course Theories of Business Informatics and Business Process Analysis, I expect the students to have knowledge and skills at least to the extent of the course BPH_PINF. If the student did not study business informatics during bachelor's studies, I recommend studying the course for C credits.

Course objectives
The goal of this course is to integrate knowledge obtained in some previous courses (BPH_PINF, MPH_BUPM, MPH_SYRP, MHP_TBIN), deepen the knowledge of the students in the chosen disciplines (namely IS project management, IS strategy management, IS business value, process analysis, and modeling) which will help them to understand the concept of information strategy better and to allow them to design a particular information strategy for a chosen enterprise.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student will be able to:
- explain basic concepts connected to information strategy (e.g. IT Governance, Enterprise Architecture, see the content of the course),
- explain the purpose of information strategy to business-oriented people,
- select and apply methods for information strategy design,
- design an information strategy for a chosen company.

Final exam – essay

Any plagiarism in assignments during the semester, and copying, keeping a record of tests or carrying the tests out, using forbidden aids including any communication devices or any other breach of objectivity of the exam is regarded as a failure to meet the obligations of the course and as a serious breach of study regulations. As a consequence, the teacher grades the student with "F" or "N" and the dean is allowed to initiate a disciplinary action, which might lead to the termination of the studies.
