Business Information Systems

Business Information Systems, Furtwangen - study success


The first business information courses were offered in Furtwangen in 1971. Currently we are offering bachelor's programmes in Business Information Systems and Business Networking eBusiness and master's programmes in Business Application Architectures and Business Consulting. Our courses remain at the leading edge with an up-to-the-minute curriculum.


Right from the start our courses have a practical orientation and are not only theoretical. Teaching is in small groups with the professors using communicative methods. Half of the programme is spent working in close contact with companies: this includes practicals, workshops, project work, practical study semesters, thesis work and part-time work. The maximum number of students on the programmes is 45.
