What Is This Programme About?

Business IT helps companies to structure their internal and external information and communication flows. As a classic cross-disciplinary subject, Business IT uses content and methods from business administration and computer science as well as from the social sciences and telecommunications engineering. Business IT specialists work at the interfaces between specialist departments and must be able to think in interdisciplinary terms.

Why Choose This Programme?

Anyone wanting to study Business IT should both enjoy logical reasoning and be interested in business processes. They should also have a capacity for teamwork, communication and social skills, as almost all projects are carried out in teams. A good level of English is an advantage for studying the specialist literature, which is often in English. No previous knowledge of computer science/IT is required. All basic principles are taught in the first semesters.

How is the programme structured?

The study programme is organised in six semesters. In addition to delivering expert knowledge and soft skills, the programme attaches particular importance to the practical relevance of taught content. Students acquire sound basic training in the thematic areas of business administration and computer science and have the option to specialise individually. The programme has a strong practical orientation, which is reflected both in the content and form of delivery. Besides lectures, student presentations, group work and practical projects are very much a key part of the programme. Students have access during their studies to current business informatics software.

Where does it lead?

Business IT applications have become indispensable in all sectors of today’s economy. There are few business processes that are not supported by IT. Business informatics specialists plan and develop, implement and maintain corporate information and communications systems. They analyse the business processes and organisational structures in companies and administrations.
