The aim of this course is straightforward: at the end of the course, students should be able to understand all the three components of Relational Database Management Systems (structural, operational, and integrity component). In addition, students should be able to realize and manage Relational Databases using SQL (creation, modification, queries, indexes, security and transactions). The text focuses on the use of relational database technology and SQL (the standard query language used to communicate with relational database management systems) as it is what students will encounter in businesses today.
The course introduces the students to basics of business decision making and theories of decision making. It analyses separate phases of the decision making process and factors which influence the process of decision making. Also, it is very important to introduce the students to different methods of decision making, and to various circumstances in which decision making is needed. Special emphasis is placed upon role and meaning of information systems as a support to decision making, and upon methods and techniques of decision making which ease the decision making process. Information systems serve as the foundation for management because they present continued process of gathering various information which are processed for the needs of decision making.
The main goal of the course is to introduce the students to the theoretical basement, methods and techniques of linear programming in operations research and management science, and to understand its application in purpose. According to this, purpose of the course is to help the students in developing sense for mathematical formalization of practice problems using information technology (tools from the shelf or homemade programme packages).
The aim of the course is to introduce students with the terminology in the field of business English and morphological and syntactic peculiarities of business English. Students use acquired knowledge in language production and interaction in given communication situations in business context, in oral and written form. Students learn about basic stylistic and structural characteristics of representative texts in the fields of business English and adopt strategies for interpreting texts and reference texts. Students will master the communication skills needed for listening a foreign language conferences, discussions or presentation, including the basics of managing in a multicultural context. Students can also use information technology for the purpose of self-expanding vocabulary and reading skills (analysis, synthesis of information) and through teamwork, through the provision of written assignments or oral presentations.
The course covers topics that introduce students to business operations principles in productive companies and other profit and non-profit organizations, presents the company as a system and explains the role of modern ICT in company’s management, systemizes processes in catalogue groups and systemizes informatics, material and other organization courses.

The aim of the course Software Analysis and Design is to introduce students to the life cycle and stages of development of modern software products. Program development has become an important branch of industry that has its own laws and specific standards. The course goes through all stages of the life cycle: analysis of the domain name system, the specification of program requirements, methods and techniques program modelling, program development, program testing and debugging. In addition, students learn fundamental approaches that are used in development and engineering of complex software systems and modern tools and procedures that make this process easier.
The aim of course Knowledge Bases and Semantic Web is to acquaint students with two important, intertwined areas, dealing with intelligent structuring and intelligent processing of data (information) in the environment of the Web. Structured data in dynamic interaction with each other, a combination of classic search and deductive statements, resulting in knowledge bases. In recent years, the notion of knowledge base is replaced by the notion of ontologies. Semantic Web is set in the context of the Web and provides intelligent access to heterogeneous, distributed IT facilities. Fields of application are constantly expanding and now include knowledge management (including business rules systems), electronic commerce (including systems of automated negotiation), natural language processing... The course will provide students with the necessary theoretical knowledge, acquaint them with modern programming languages and tools, and pass them through practical work on computers equipped for the use of Semantic Web systems and their development.
The main goal of the course is student adoption of basic knowledge required for successful interpersonal communication in business environment and efficient figuration of messages in public and written communication and during the presentation of information. Also, the students will gain required knowledge and skills in applied fields of business communication, such as execution of presentation, sales communication, negotiation, conduction of meeting, interviewing, electronic mediated communication etc.
