    The objective of the programme is to equip students with a sound understanding of business information systems and to prepare them for working in positions with analytical demands in the IT branch and other industrial and service companies.

    In order to implement new business ideas and improvements, business information systems must continually developed. Students therefore learn how to actively create business information systems by means of internet-based solutions and to constructively implement their own concepts in the operative system.

    A balance of theoretical and practical knowledge and methodical competence as well as the integration of research content provides students the tools they need to question the traditional methods and develop innovative solutions.

    Career perspectives

    Our master's graduates are prepared to enter the workforce in positions in national and international companies. The individual design of the course of study, in which advanced economic core competencies are deepened in an applied context allows students to acquire key market qualifications. Our graduates are prepared to form supply chain management concepts in industry and retail, to further develop sales lines, to implement multi-channel marketing, to implement management information systems and to attain managerial positions in these areas later on.

    At the same time, the degree is an excellent starting basis for doctoral studies at a university in Germany or abroad. Graduates can also enter well-known research institutes.

    Occupational perspectives

    Graduates of the master's programme can expect to find attractive and demanding management positions in the IT branch, which are distinguished by a high level of decision making and a large scope of responsibility.

    Possible employers include IT companies as well as companies in other branches. Some examples of careers include work as an executive (such as an area manager) or in staff departments of larger companies. An example of an entry-level position is as an assistant to the Board of Directors.
