Informatics is very important in contemporary life. This is especially true in the business world. Thus quality informatics education of all employees, especially of managers, is a must. Tertiary education should follow these requirements. In this paper we give an overview of several segments of this education that we consider important. Our experience is related to the education of managers in tourism, but the presented materials can easily be integrated into the general education of managers.
