Program Structure

The modular degree program can be divided into the following study blocks, which in turn consist of individual modules:

  • Fundamentals
  • IT/Informatics in-depth block
  • Business administration in-depth block
  • Information systems in-depth block
  • Information systems project (practical part)
  • Soft skills

In two required elective modules you can choose the options that best suit your interests.

In the practical modules in Information Systems, subject-specific questions are deepened. Your academic success will be evaluated according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) during your studies. Each module of the study blocks ends with an independent examination. You will be able to document these by means of examinations, written papers, presentations, project studies and reports. In the last semester you will write your bachelor's thesis.

The modules of the degree program are divided up thematically as follows:

Basic modules:

  • Introduction to Business Administration, Mathematics, Basics of Information Systems, Basics of Economics, English, Statistics, Law.

IT/informatics modules:

  • Programming I, Programming II, Software Engineering, Databases, Computer Networks and Architectures, electives

Business administration modules:

  • Accounting, Investment and Financing, Materials Management/Logistics/Production, Marketing, Personnel and Organization as well as Corporate Management including Business Planning, electives

Information systems modules:

  • Business Process Management, Business Intelligence Systems/Knowledge Management Systems, eBusiness, ERP systems, Project Management, electives

Study competence subjects:

  • Methodology/Systematics/Presentation, Social Interaction

An extensive practical module ensures that the degree program is application-oriented and enables students to combine studies with vocational training or a career. You can present your experiences on a practical module day.

The modules are designed so that you can plan a stay abroad in the 6th semester. The trainees among you will have already completed their final examinations at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) at this point.

A semester at a university abroad can be important for your career planning. In addition, your stay abroad offers you good opportunities to acquire or deepen your language skills and gain important experience. If you are interested, please contact the International Office team at the School of Business. They can answer all your questions about the semester abroad, for example: Which country, partner university or accommodation is right for me?
