Information Systems Science

Information Systems Science at Aalto University School of Business has a strong focus on empirical studies and active cooperation with companies. Besides theoretical contributions, ISS studies often emphasize practical relevance.

Our research deals with adoption, use and impacts of ICT on consumers, companies, and society at large. We use multi-disciplinary approaches and apply theories from a number of reference disciplines, including management, organization sciences, marketing, and economics. Wide range of both qualitative and quantitative methods are used and often triangulated. Research teams and projects are encouraged. Most projects have both national and international partners, and the results of our research are targeted at top tier academic journals.
