Abstract

This syllabus of educational practical-oriented (adaptation) course “Enterprise Architecture (EA) declares the minimum requirements to the knowledge and the capability of students obtained after adopting the course content. It determines the content of classes and type of knowledge control (examination). This syllabus is intended for tutors that are running this EA course, student assistants and students. The syllabus was developed in correspondence with: • FGOS of higher professional education of master program 38.04.05 Business informatics; • The running university study (RUP) of master program 38.04.05 Business informatics Master program “Big Data Systems” that was accepted by the scientific committee of NRU HSE in 2018
