Qualification goals of the M.Sc. Information Systems

The following qualification goals are achieved through the master’s degree in Information Systems.


  • can independently analyse problems in information systems using scientific methods, develop solutions based on the state of the art in science and technology, control and check their implementation, and didactically prepare and present the results achieved.
  • have demonstrated in exercises, projects, seminars and possibly while studying abroad that they master the methods and processes of information systems and can also use them appropriately in an unfamiliar, interdisciplinary application context.
  • have shown in their thesis and disputation that they can independently design an extensive research project by applying the specialist knowledge they have learned using independently selected and substantiated scientific methods to a specially designed research question.
  • are familiar with a logical-analytical, systemic approach that enables them to examine new types of problems and complex relationships in information systems based on limited information and to develop solutions by integrating existing and new knowledge.
  • can independently contribute to the scientific development of the subject and are qualified to do a doctorate. You will be able to reflect on methods and theories of information systems and develop them further.
  • have developed a professional self-image, are able to meet the respective practical requirements independently and take a critical look at the effects of their work.
  • are trained to look at problems in the field of information systems both alone and in a team and to involve those involved in a goal-oriented manner, considering the respective group situation.
  • have made decisions in exercises and projects, assigned tasks, and assumed responsibility for themselves or their tasks in the group.
  • can acquire extensive specialist knowledge both under supervision and independently. They have the ability for continuous further education, as required by the dynamic development of the information systems course.
  • can critically reflect on the technical and non-technical effects of using information systems. This enables you to responsibly shape the digital transformation of the economy and society.
