Content and structure of the minor

Information and Service Management (ISM) refers to the creative use of information and technology in decision making, in managing business processes and networks, and in developing new products and services. While ISM gives an understanding of different business functions and their interdependence relevant to managers, it also provides methods and skills for economic analysis required in many other fields of undergraduate and graduate studies.

Topics covered by the minor studies in Information and Service Management include:

  • decision analysis and negotiation processes;
  • development of information systems and associated business processes and services;
  • logistics and supply chain management: sourcing, production and distribution of goods and services;
  • management of technological innovation; and
  • mathematical methods and statistical analysis.

Minor studies in Information and Service Management consist of three focus areas: Business Analytics, Information Systems Science and Logistics and Service Management. The focus of Business Analytics is on increasingly important skills to manage and analyse the rapidly growing supply of information. The focus of Information Systems Science is on the know-how necessary to efficiently manage and develop business processes using information systems and networks. The focus of Logistics and Service Management is on providing students with the capabilities to manage and develop companies’ production, distribution, supply, purchasing and service operations.

Minor studies in ISM typically consist of four E-level courses totalling 24 cr. If a student has no prior studies in ISM subjects, one or two C-level courses can be included in the minor. The possible C-level courses are listed in the course lists below. As an alternative to the Master’s level minor studies, the student may choose a minor from the Bachelor’s level (Business Technology, BIZ30300).
