Business Information Systems,
Part-time Programme

The HfTL’s part-time bachelor’s programme in business information systems allows vocational training graduates who are employed to gain further qualifications while working. Because it is such a flexible programme, students can study according to their own time and location needs, using online learning platforms and tutorials at times when they are not physically present at the university.

Employability and Careers

There are many exciting jobs in store for business information systems graduates, experts responsible for developing IT and communication systems used for creating or improving business processes. Examples include accounting, production control, and customer support processes. Business information specialists often work on multidisciplinary projects in international teams. They are able to rapidly respond to changes in market demand by optimising IT systems accordingly. Business information specialists speak the language of economists and are also familiar with the terminology used in computer science, allowing them to act as “interpreters” between these two environments. This is why the programme also aims to improve students’ communication skills in English and German, and includes an introduction to law.
In today’s world, information and communication systems are needed in all sectors, from economy to public services. This opens up a broad spectrum of job opportunities for computing experts.

Here are a few examples:
Process managers keep a close eye on key figures and on customers. They analyse business processes in order to make them more efficient and customer-oriented. All this is done in close cooperation with other divisions in the companies.

Online marketing professionals plan, coordinate, and use internet marketing instruments, for example in professional marketing campaigns. 

Business analysts make data come alive by interpreting them to gain insights into market, customer, and competition behaviour. This makes them important assets for managers and means that they help shape the future of the companies.
