Business Information Systems,
Full-time Programme

When companies have to deliver goods or services all over the country, it’s easy to make mistakes. Business information systems experts make sure that logistics and information streams function properly, for example by developing the right software solutions. Business administration and computer science are the two pillars on which this HfTL programme is based. In practical projects, students have the opportunity of proving and improving their entrepreneurial approaches and business IT solutions.

Employability and Careers

As a business information systems expert, you will find work in all areas of a company which have to do with IT systems. Which practically all areas do. After all, these days one can hardly imagine any department not relying on IT systems to get work done. You could work in IT departments or for IT service providers, designing systems and providing support for other company departments. This means you will also be working in manufacturing, logistics, controlling, marketing, and sales.

Here are just some of the things you could do with this degree:

Process managers play an important role in any company. They analyse and improve business processes, making sure that they are efficient and customer-oriented. This means they have to work closely with other departments.
Online marketing professionals plan and implement internet marketing tools, e.g. professional marketing campaigns.
Business analysts work with company data, interpreting them to gain new insights about the market, customers, and the competition. These skills make them valuable assets for management and mean that they help shape the future of the company.
