Bachelor Course in Information Systems

Information systems is an interdisciplinary subject at the interface of business administration and computer science. Business informatics is concerned with the development and deployment of IT and communications technology-based solutions to resolve business problems, and with the analysis and assessment of the suitability of new information technologies for application in practical business environments. Business informatics places less emphasis on the acquisition of pure hardware and programming expertise and allows students to focus more on developing their abilities to create IT-based solutions and to work collaboratively to implement solutions in company and corporate environments. In addition to introducing students to the fundamentals of information processing, the B.Sc. programme in business informatics aims to teach students the analytical skills required to solve problems in business economics.

The interdisciplinary character of business informatics provides students with numerous options to pursue specialist interests during their degree studies and in their subsequent careers.

The six-semester programme has a definite practical focus. Students who successfully complete the programme will be awarded a Bachelor of Science degree (B.Sc.). Over the course of the three-year programme, students will be taught the fundamental facts, concepts and methods of business informatics, computer science and business administration. Graduates will be able to apply the knowledge and skills acquired to solving practical problems in business informatics in their subsequent careers.

The Bachelor’s programme is a first-degree programme after which qualified graduates can enrol for the consecutive Master’s degree.
