About

Flexible in terms of its architecture, this multidisciplinary course carries on from basic studies in law, economics and forensic science (crime detection techniques). Its aim is to allow students to acquire the necessary skills to understand problems posed by information technologies generally, be it in a legal sense or in relation to information technology or crime detection techniques.

  • Career Prospects

With digitalisation extending to all sectors of our environment (public administration, insurance, audiovisual media, banks, publishing, lawyers’ offices), Switzerland once again leads in information technologies. Many jobs are now created by information technologies in the public administration and in the operational activities of multinationals, or in the creation of start-ups.

Moreover, university studies develop, in addition to specific academic skills, a great many transverse skills such as: oral and written communication, critical, analytical and summarising faculties, abilities in research, the learning and transmission of knowledge, independence and the ability to make judgements in the field of specialisation and overlapping areas. This panoply of skills, combined with specialist knowledge acquired in the course of studies, is excellent preparation for a wide range of employment opportunities.

Programme Structure

The objective of the courses and the seminars in the various disciplines is to offer:

  • a good understanding of the issues of a legal, criminal, economic, managerial and technological nature related to the use of information technologies

  • solutions for achieving control over these technologies.

The teaching approach encourages the devel-opment of interdisciplinary research capable of responding to the new challenges of the information society.

The maximum duration of the programme is five semesters. The students are first brought up to the required level in relation to their initial orientations through introductory courses.The programme is accompanied by work on a Master’s dissertation incorporating the knowledge acquired.According to their study plan, students can specialise in an orientation and graduate with a particular special subject:

  • Juridical Sciences (for students with a Bachelor of Law degree)

  • Intelligence and Forensic Science (for stu-dents holding a Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science)

  • Economic Intelligence (for students holding a Bachelor of Economics degree).

Although this programme does not require any particular prior knowledge, a propensi-ty for information technologies is necessary to ensure the maximum involvement of the students in the degree course.

Examinations

The examination series are held at the end of each semester.
