Detailed description of the degree programme


Software systems enable business processes to be improved and new business models to be realised in companies. As an IT business engineer, you will design and develop this software on the basis of modern (web) technologies, whilst understanding its business logic in practical use.

This qualification profile is valuable to companies. After gaining your Bachelor degree, you will have access to jobs in any sector: for example, as a software/web/application developer, or as a system analyst in a bank, insurance company, commercial enterprise, energy supply company, telecommunications company, software firm or internet service provider, or as an IT consultant in a management consultancy. IT business engineers are also much sought after in small and medium-sized enterprises and in the civil service.

Degree programme

The Bachelor degree programme in Business Informatics is divided into three academic years. The basic, advanced and expansion stages span two semesters each.

In your first academic year, you will acquire basic knowledge in IT and Economics. Typical subjects are Programming and Web Development, as well as Economics and Business Administration. In supporting modules, you will devise methods to make studying easier, such as “How to study” and “Research”.

In the advanced stage from the third semester, you will further your knowledge, enabling you to design software systems and realise prototypes. Moreover, you will learn how to analyse basic business inter-relationships. Your curriculum will include Software and Web Engineering, Databases, Application Systems and e-Business, as well as Accountancy, Operational Business Processes, Economic Law and Corporate Application Processes. You will be assisted by modules in which you are taught English language, communication and presentation skills.

In the final expansion stage, you will become familiar with the application-oriented and strategic aspects of Business Informatics in subjects such as Business Engineering, Business Intelligence, Project Management and IT Management. In addition, you will have the chance to select in-depth subjects that match your fields of interest.

After six semesters, you will be ready to conclude your degree programme with a Bachelor thesis.

Integrated practical phases

The degree programme includes two practical phases, lasting three and six months, which are a fixed element of your studies. After the fourth semester, you will gain a first impression of your future career in one of the faculty’s many partner companies. A second practical phase is completed between the fifth and sixth semesters.


The degree programme combines Business Informatics, Computer Science, Business Administration, Mathematics and other supporting subject areas, providing an integrated overview focused on application and problem-solving. The Bachelor programme in Business Informatics conveys approaches, ways of thinking and methods applied in all subject areas concerned, designed to nurture interdisciplinary skills.

Modern equipment

Excellently-equipped computer labs and a state-of-the-art server system with hundreds of virtual machines ensure you will acquire and apply your knowledge using modern technology.
