Qualification goals of the B.Sc. Information Systems

The Bachelor's degree programme in Information Systems achieves the following qualification goals in particular:

Scientific qualification:

  • By attending the subject-specific modules of the Bachelor's degree programme in Information Systems, graduates can analyse the most important problems in the context of company and inter-company information systems in business and administration, such as electronic business, communication systems or digital IT platforms, with the help of scientific methods. They can derive solutions based on the current state of science and technology, accompany and check their implementation and prepare and present the results achieved didactically, as they have shown in seminars and projects.
  • Thus, graduates can make a fundamental, scientific contribution to solving interdisciplinary problems with quantitative, qualitative and mixed research methods, such as data and literature analyses, experiments or case studies.
  • After attending the subject-specific modules, they are in particular able to understand and reflect on selected methods and theories of business informatics, applied and theoretical computer science and economics.
  • In their final thesis, graduates have shown that they can independently design a research paper under guidance within a given time frame by applying learned subject knowledge using scientific methods to a given research question, taking into account generally accepted principles of good scientific practice. They can thus contribute to the scientific advancement of the subject and are qualified for a Master's degree in Information Systems through research-oriented modules.

Qualification for a qualified gainful employment:

  • Graduates have demonstrated in the context of exercises, projects, seminars as well as subject-specific modules and, if applicable, in the course of studying abroad, that they have mastered important methods and procedures of business informatics and can also use them appropriately in a familiar, interdisciplinary application context.
  • Through their studies, graduates are familiar with a logical-analytical, systemic approach to thinking, which enables them to investigate new types of problems and contexts in business informatics and to derive and further develop solutions.
  • Graduates know the processes of projects from seminars, projects and the final thesis and can plan, carry out and control individual work steps themselves.

Personal development:

  • Graduates are trained to consider problems from the field of business informatics both alone and in interdisciplinary teams. In group work, they have shown that they can work out constructive solutions together and communicate them professionally.
  • Graduates have made decisions in exercises and projects, distributed tasks and taken responsibility for themselves or their task in the group and can organise themselves independently in a team.
  • Graduates are able to acquire extensive specialised knowledge both under guidance and independently. They thus possess the ability for continuous further education, as required by the dynamic development of the subject of business informatics.
  • Graduates have set individual focal points and developed a professional self-image as well as ideas on how they can develop professionally. They can realistically assess their own abilities, meet the respective practical requirements and act as future software developers, project managers, IT consultants and related activities and operate as mediators between business and technical requirements.
  • Graduates are able to examine socio-technical systems in an application-related manner after attending the subject-specific modules and thereby classify their status within our social system.
  • Graduates are able to critically reflect on the technical and non-technical effects of the use of information systems. This enables them to responsibly shape the digital transformation of the economy and society.
  • Graduates know basic approaches to ethical questions and challenges from the perspective of business informatics, applied and theoretical informatics as well as economic sciences and can significantly shape social processes critically, reflectively as well as with a sense of responsibility and in a democratic public spirit.
