Undergraduate Program "Information Systems & Digital Media"

Information Systems in a digital world

How can companies be managed successfully? Which processes play a role? How do you bring economics and technology together? Information systems managers work through these questions and many more. The degree program combines traditional and business responsibilities in the field of digital economy, for example, user-generated contents in the Internet, digital business models or mobile information services. The challenges of digital media and the solutions provided by information systems are brought together. Students learn to creatively link innovative technologies with economic considerations.

Study structure

Students receive basic knowledge in the fields of economics, management and business processes. Management and information technology are the basis for business information systems.

In the main part of the degree program, students choose between the specialisations in Management or in IT. Here, they extend their knowledge in the development and implementation of innovative business and service-provider models. Among these are, for example, the management of business process and application systems, customer management systems, business intelligence, data science or IT management.

In the fifth semester, students spend half a year working for companies in an internship. That way, they can use their theoretical knowledge and get work experience.

A study with high interdisciplinarity and practice-oriented training
To train our students in the 21st Century Skills they work in interdisciplinary projects offered during the elective part of the program. These projects are done mostly together with companies or non-profit organisations.

The strong practical orientation in cooperation with renowned companies is self-evident in the program. With its emphasis on application systems, such as SAP, and its integration of media technologies, the Informations Systems program offers many attractive and unique features.

Perspectives
Potential employers are to be found in industrial and service-provider branches and in public administration. Graduates are sought-after experts in various positions, often in project and process management, in service management, in marketing, in controlling or in IT management.

Their multidisciplinary competences qualify them for work especially in projects involving more than one field and which require an overview of the whole company. Information systems experts with their special knowledge and skills will be increasingly needed as the application of information and modern information systems are critical success factors for companies.
