What it’s about

We combine business administration and computer science to give you the tools you need to be an active part of digital transformation processes. Business Informatics helps to position companies and businesses so that their processes are efficient and so that they use artificial intelligence, data and software smartly. It enables them to develop products and services that have a specific use for their customers. This could be your job.

Course structure & majors

This degree programme will equip you with everything you need to tackle one of the main tasks of the future: the digital transformation. You will learn to think these three things as one:

  • IT engineering,
  • implementation, and
  • business administration.

You’ll acquire this knowledge in lectures, but most importantly in tutorials and projects. The first two semesters will mainly focus on basics: Your timetable will include programming languages, networks and the (digital) economy. In the third and fourth semester of your studies you will focus on data. You will learn how to manage and control businesses using big data, data science and data base systems. In the fifth semester of the programme, you’ll gain insights to artificial intelligence and realise your own software project.

Equipped like this, you’ll complete a three-month internship in your sixth semester and maybe you’ll stay with the same company for your bachelor’s thesis.
