Structure and Curriculum

The bachelor’s degree programme in Information Systems is divided into two main segments: foundational and specialization studies.

In specialization studies, students focus on acquiring and developing knowledge and skills pertaining to one of two possible module groups.

A1: Foundations of Information Systems

In the courses pertaining to the A1 module group, students receive knowledge and skills training in the core areas of Information Systems. Students become acquainted with business-related information and application systems, and deal with information and knowledge management. Furthermore, students learn the basics of international IT project management and the modelling of business information systems.

B: Specialization Studies

Students select one of two focus area alternatives:

B1: Advanced Studies

The B1 alternative is geared towards the expansion of specialized knowledge of a particular subject field via the completion of additional modules selected from among those of the bachelor’s programmes in Information Systems with a focus on information systems, applied informatics, and economics. Within the scope of structured foreign studies degree credits can be earned at a foreign university.

B2: Specialization Studies in Business and Human Resource Education

The B2 specialization alternative affords students the opportunity to expand their proficiency in knowledge transfer or, for example, to contribute to the development of e-learning modules.
