  • Who has completed a bachelor’s study programme in other fields of study. Based on the application for enrolment, the competent faculty authority prescribes additional study obligations to the candidate in the range of maximum 30 ECTS.

For graduates of higher professional study programmes adopted before 11. 06. 2004, the provisions for graduates of bachelor’s study programmes shall apply mutatis mutandis.

Anyone who has completed an equivalent education abroad can also enrol in the first or subsequent years of the master’s study programme Business Informatics. At the request of the applicant, FIS determines the equivalence of education acquired abroad within the procedure of education recognition.

To advance from the first to the second year, the student must acquire at least 45 ECTS from the first year. The faculty may allow the student to advance to a higher year, even if the required conditions are not met, in the following circumstances: maternity, prolonged illness, exceptional family or social circumstances, participation in top cultural, sports or professional events. A student who does not meet the conditions for enrolling in a higher year may repeat a year once during their studies or change their study programme or course due to non-fulfilment of obligations in the previous study programme or course. It is not possible to repeat the second year because an additional year (absolventski staž) is intended for fulfilling the missing obligations.

The condition for the completion of studies is the successful completion of all study obligations prescribed by the programme in the amount of 120 ECTS. A student who enrols directly in the second year, after completing a university education or specialization according to a programme adopted before 11.06.2004, must pass all prescribed differential exams and full-time study obligations of the second year.
