Qualification goals of the B.Sc. International Information Systems Management program

The bachelor's degree program in International Information Systems Management achieves the following qualification goals:

Scientific qualification and qualification for a qualified occupation

Graduates

  • will be able to analyze problems of international information systems management independently with scientific methods (systematic literature analysis, design science research (development of prototypes), simulations, experiments, case studies and quantitative methods (empiricism)), derive solutions, control and check their implementation and prepare and present the results achieved didactically, as they have shown in seminars and projects.
  • will be able to understand business informatics theories and procedures by attending the specialized modules.
  • have demonstrated in the context of exercises, projects, seminars as well as an internship or study abroad that they have mastered selected methods and procedures of international information system management and can also apply them appropriately in a confidential, interdisciplinary and international application context.
  • have demonstrated in the context of their final thesis that they can independently design a research project by applying acquired specialist knowledge to a given research question using scientific methods, taking into account generally accepted principles of good scientific practice.
  • are trained in a logical-analytical, systemic approach, which enables them to investigate new types of problems in international information system management and to derive and develop solutions.
  • are qualified for research-oriented work in a Master's program in International Information Systems Management through active participation in seminars and projects. They are familiar with the processes of scientific projects and are able to carry out individual work steps themselves by practicing in small teams.

Personal development

Graduates

  • have set individual focal points, developed a professional self-image and ideas on how to develop professionally, and are able to meet the respective practical requirements.
  • have been trained to deal with problems in the field of international information systems management, both on their own and as part of a team. Through group works they have demonstrated that they can work together to develop solutions and communicate them in a professional manner.
  • have made decisions in exercises and projects, distributed tasks and taken responsibility for themselves or their task in the group.
  • have demonstrated during their internship in an international context or during their studies abroad that they are able to communicate and act professionally in intercultural teams in their chosen foreign language at an intermediate level.
  • are able to acquire extensive specialist knowledge both under supervision and independently. In particular, they have the ability to continue learning independently, as required by the dynamic development of the field of study International Information Systems Management.
  • are able to critically reflect on the technical and non-technical effects of the use of information systems. This will enable them to responsibly shape the digital transformation of the economy and society.
  • know basic approaches to ethical issues and challenges from the perspective of international information systems management and are able to play a decisive role in shaping social processes in a critical, reflective manner as well as with a sense of responsibility and in a democratic public spirit.
  • understand the relevance of digital technologies in the context of society, economic growth and innovation. Graduates are aware that the successful management of information systems can play a significant role in creating new jobs in an economy and in finding solutions to social and ecological problems.
