The degree program

The master's degree program business information systems is part of a consecutive offer with a national alignment and based on the Bachelor's degree program of business information systems in content and structure.

The degree program is characterised by specialization of advanced subject areas from the bachelor's degree program and also shows a strong research orientation. The target of the master's degree program is to give the graduates the current computer science and business administration concepts and solution approaches as well as the necessary knowledge of IT tools and their use in organizations.

The master's degree program is based on the three pillars of business information systems: Business information systems, computer science and economics (incl. economic law). In the area of business information systems, there is a broad offer of courses available. Available modules include computer-supported group work, operational business information systems, IT-security, decision-supporting systems and human computer interaction. The elective modules of computer science cover specialization subjects of practical and applied computer science. For example, offers on operating systems databases and computer architectures are available. The third pillar of economics comprises areas from media management, economics, business administration and law.

In addition to a general research orientation, the master's degree program is also targeted at practical training that enables the graduates to work both on the user and the developer sides - or in a mediator's role - in the area of operational information processing. Graduates work as information managers, system analysts, software developers or database specialists. They are also in demand in operational function areas such as marketing, production or material management. With a master's degree in business information systems, the graduates are able to take over management functions in large German or foreign enterprises, SME, administrations or start-ups from many different areas.

Study organization

Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules

Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.

We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
