Content and course sequence

Our degree programme in Business Informatics is divided into a basic, an advanced and an expansion stage. Each stage lasts two semesters, allowing you to obtain your degree after three years.

In the basic stage, you will acquire basic IT and business knowledge. Typical subjects are programming, web development, database systems, and economics and business administration. In addition, we offer interdisciplinary modules, in which you learn the academic techniques needed for your studies.

In the advanced stage, you will enhance your knowledge, enabling you to design software systems and develop prototypes. Moreover, you will learn how to analyse how businesses operate internally as well as with suppliers and clients. Your curriculum will include software and web engineering, business application systems, and accounting, operational business processes, and business law. In additional modules, you will improve your communication and presentation skills, as well as your knowledge of English.

In the final expansion stage, you will become familiar with application-oriented aspects of business informatics in subjects such as business engineering and project management. In addition, you will have the chance to select additional modules from a wide range of elective courses, tailoring your profile to your own interests and in a well-focused manner. After six semesters, you will conclude your degree programme with a Bachelor thesis.

Business Informatics is a practice-integrated degree programme and includes two blocks of practice, lasting 9 and 24 weeks. The first block of practice takes place at the beginning of the fifth semester in one of our partner companies. Here, you will gain a first impression of your future career.
