Course content at a glance:

Students are expected to work in a project group, dealing with a current issue of the financial sector, which focuses on the field of tension between IT-based product or IT-based service innovation. This is done on the basis of selected problems, such as the conceptual development of a new financial information system or a critical analysis of IT innovations and current regulation in the financial industry. In addition to the theoretical foundation for this elaboration, empirical analyzes need to be conducted by the project groups. Through the project focus of this course students are prepared for common team and project work within organizations.
