Business Information Systems (B.Sc.)

The "Bachelor of Science - Business Informatics" degree programme prepares you for a professional activity related to economics and the use of information and communication technologies. For this purpose, the students are not only familiarized with the basic knowledge of the scientific and practical methods of business administration and informatics as well as associated teaching areas (mathematics, statistics and data mining), but also acquire key qualifications such as teamwork, presentation techniques and soft skills. The extensive range of electives offers the possibility of specialization. The focus is on the areas of data mining, internet technologies and ERP systems. The practical project in the sixth semester ideally enables a smooth transition from the university to the IT department of a company, an authority or another organization. On the other hand, the theoretical scientific content of the course of studies provides the necessary entry qualification for a subsequent master’s course.
