Business Information Systems (BSc)

As a business IT specialist, you will be able to act as an intermediary between computer scientists and business economists, between companies and customers - you will speak the language of both developers and users. In this innovative degree programme, you will develop, implement and operate information and communication systems, enabling you to visualise, analyse and optimise a company's structures and processes. The skills you learn will drive the ongoing digitalisation of business, administration and society.

Programme content

The Bachelor's degree programme in Business Information Systems (BSc) teaches knowledge from both business administration and computer science. Marketing and controlling are just as much a part of the curriculum as analysis and programming. In addition to practical expertise, students acquire interdisciplinary skills in law and English, as well as soft skills such as presentation techniques and time management.

In the third semester, students have the opportunity to choose specialisations from the fields of business application systems, business intelligence and IT controlling. In the second study phase, students choose one of six specialisations according to their interests: Data Science, Cyber-Physical Systems, Integrated Information and Communication Systems, IT Controlling, Complex Software Systems or Visual Computing. The degree programme is rounded off with an integrated practical project and the final thesis.


Practical relevance

Business IT specialists are characterised by their holistic, analytical thinking and strong communication skills. They analyse problems, plan optimisation options and present their results to an audience from all areas of a company: controlling, sales and marketing as well as project management or production.
