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.
Business informatics specialists work at the interface between people and machines. They have to understand user requests - from superiors as well as customers - and implement them into information systems. The business IT specialist is employed in various industries and business areas. The professional field in business informatics is very diverse. The interdisciplinary orientation of this course and the associated coverage of a wide range of technical tasks ensure that graduates have very good long-term chances in the IT job market.
Specifically, the course prepares for the following professional fields:
Possible employers after graduation
The degree programme has a generalist orientation and is modularly structured in semesters. All exams take place during the course. The six-semester course is divided into three parts:
In the first two semesters, students work on the formal basics of business informatics, computer science and the basics of business administration.
In the following three semesters, the students deepen their knowledge of individual subject areas in elective courses.
The last semester consists of a practical project and the final thesis. The practical project can optionally be replaced by a semester abroad at one of our partner universities.
After successfully completing your studies, the university of applied sciences awards the university degree "Bachelor of Science" and entitles you to pursue further master's studies.
Enrollment usually takes place in the winter semester via the online portal of the Trier University of Applied Sciences.
