Programme content

We have been offering the Business Information Systems programme for over 40 years - and during this time it has been constantly developed further. The programme offers a successful mix of business, computer science and soft skills. As Business Information Systems is becoming ever more international in outlook, some courses are also taught in English (part of the Business Communication course which also includes soft skills). Business areas such as innovation management and business finance planning are also part of the curriculum.

The two large projects in the 6th semester are an important part of the programme. Teams of students apply their theorical know-how to the solution of a related, large-scale realistic problem, partially in cooperation with companies.
