The Department of Business Informatics and International Accounting was founded in October 2016. The establishment of the department was the right answer to the challenges we face today. The development of information and communication technologies, accelerating digitalization, and increasing globalization are forcing integration of research on economics and information systems.
The mission of department is to conduct research and training of young scientists and students in applying accounting systems and their international standards, as well as planning, designing, implementing, and using business information systems to support and improve business, public administration, and society. We take up new lines of research and education in these fields of research.
The head of the department is Associate Professor Ewa Ziemba. The department consists of two sub-departments:
- Sub-Department of Business Information Systems managed by Associate Professor Ewa Ziemba;
- Sub-Department of International Accounting managed by Professor Halina Buk.
The employees of the department are very good theorists and educators dealing with business information systems and international accounting. The strength of our employees is practical experience, as apart from their academic and research work, they often perform supervisory, managerial, consulting and administration functions in business and public administration.
The scientific and research achievements of our team consist of about 700 titles which have been published in prestigious national and international journals and publishers. The results of the research are presented at scientific conferences in the country and abroad. Our academics and researchers hold research fellowships and study visits to foreign and Polish universities and companies. We cooperate with many universities in Poland and abroad.
K.R. Popper’s philosophy has always guided us in our scientific, research and teaching efforts:
