Information Systems

Summary

Founded in 1966 Luiss is a private Italian University specialised in the social sciences and strongly committed to conduct academic research and educate talented individuals. Luiss faculty is actively engaged in both theoretical and applied research in a variety of areas of business and management including information system (IS). Since 1998, Luiss researchers have achieved international standing in IS education – including teaching and research – initially through the Research Centre on Information Systems (CeRSI) and since 2016 through the Centre for Research in Leadership, Innovation, and Organisation (CLIO). The Luiss IS group represents Italy in the ERCIS network and has contributed to the birth and to the growth of the itAIS (www.itais.org), the Italian Chapter of the AIS (www.aisnet.org). ItAIS plays an important role in the promotion and coordination of the Italian IS academic and scientific community.

Teaching and research activities in the IS field at Luiss are conducted at intersections of Technology, Innovation and Organizing, supported by CLIO members who have published in international top journals including JIT, JSIS, I&M, CAIS, JKM, AMJ and Management Decision.

Bachelor Programs

Digitalization and subsequent development in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics, applications and IT infrastructures represent an important change that permeates all other fields. Both large and small companies, public administration, government institutions and professionals are interested in producing and using data for a variety of purposes, from improving production processes to defining new models to generate value. Digital transformation thus challenges us to rethink traditional managerial logic and use evidence-based approaches. It requires a new leading class to embrace the opportunities offered by new technologies and the market to create organizational change and to guarantee a control of business for new institutional assets. The bachelor’s degree program in Management and Computer Science stands out from other courses offered by LUISS University in Economics, Business and Finance for the significant presence of technical and engineering topics, focused on computing and business analytics. These skills are also integrated with traditional foundation courses in Economics, Business Management, Law and Statistics.

The core of the program focuses on collecting, processing and analyzing data in order to generate new knowledge to improve processes for large and small companies as well as for startups. To develop these skills, students are given solid preparation on algorithms and coding starting in their first year, as well as database management and advanced analysis techniques. In their third year, students focus on data science applications such as cybersecurity, innovation and entrepreneurship.

The program is designed for high school graduates interested in engineering-based programs (electronics, information technology, management), statistics, mathematics and computer science. The course prepares students for roles as data scientists or to go on to master’s programs in Marketing, Operations and Finance.
The program is offered entirely in English and the university is currently developing exchange programs with several foreign universities. Through these partnerships, participants will be able to spend their final year abroad, creating a multicultural experience thanks also in part to the presence of foreign instructors and students.

The bachelor's degree program in Management and Computer Science combines economics, management and law courses – essential to critically analyze and understand the context companies and institutions operate in – with a strong focus on quantitative methods, in particular statistics, information technology and information processing.

I am Associate Professor of Organisation and Information Systems at LUISS University in Roma, Italy. I also teach at the University of Agder and Paris Dauphine courses on Digital Business and Cybersecurity. In LUISS I am the Director of the Executive Programme in Digital Innovation and Governance and I coordinate the Master in Cybersecurity. My research interests are on the design and governance of digital platforms supporting online communities and on digital innovation including the evolution of cyberthreats.

I live in Roma with Virginia and my four kids. In the past I "have been" an electronic engineer, a military law enforcement officer and a computer forensic consultant.
