Details

The programme aims to enable its graduates to master the business field of business information systems in scientific manner, and to acquire the high-level skills needed for managerial positions and positions requiring especially strong analytical capability in the IT branch and other industrial and service-providing companies.

In order to realize new business ideas, changes and improvements, business information systems must constantly be developed further. Students will therefore learn to redesign business information systems, for example, using internet-based solutions and to constructively implement their own ideas in the operative system. The balance between theoretical and practical know-how as well as knowledge of current research topics are suitable tools of the trade that can be used to question conventional procedures and develop innovative solutions.

Sufficient German language skills are required. Good language skills in English are recommended.

Graduates of the master's programme can expect to find attractive and demanding managerial positions in the IT branch, which are characterized by holding considerable scope for decision-making and high responsibility.

Potential employers include IT firms as well as enterprises in all other sectors. Graduates may go on to work in management (e.g. as an area manager) or in staff departments of larger companies. A good entry position would be as an assistant to the executive board. Get to know the different professional fields of our graduates in the alumni portraits (in German).
