The above-referenced areas of expertise correspond with the syllabus of this study course. The graduates acquire a basic knowledge in the fields of economic theories, mathematic and statistical disciplines and law. Theoretical subjects serve as a basis for the study of follow-up specialized subjects whose objective is to provide specific skills for the identification and detection of economic crime. The objective of this course of study is to master the basics of information technologies, information networks and database technologies with a special emphasis on data security and protection. The graduates use this knowledge to identify and evaluate economic data and to assess computer crime. The inclusion of foreign language lessons in the syllabus completes the standard level of the Bachelor's course of study. This course is offered only as a part-time course.
