Business Informatics – Master’s Degree

Research at our institute has two great aspects. Not only does it serve as further training for our staff and professors, it also enables students to work on current and future-oriented topics, helping them gain an advantage for their career development

Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Tilo Strutz

The programme’s objective is to teach the skills needed to design and modify IT processes in businesses and corporate networks, including the ability to use the fundamentals of change management in ICT in order to achieve certain results. The key focus lies on innovative concepts and methods used to ensure that business information and communication technologies are continuously adapted to a corporate strategy.
The programme is aimed at talented young professionals with a bachelor’s degree in business computing. Applicants with a bachelor’s degree in economics or information technology may also be admitted after proof of their qualification has been reviewed.

Employability and Careers

The Master’s programme Business Information Systems covers:

  •  Enterprise information management
  •  Management of business information models
  •  Software & service management 

Enterprise information management is about how to provide the conditions necessary for effectively and efficiently using information to increase productivity in large companies. In addition to fundamental knowledge of the technology and economics relevant to information management, the course also covers legal aspects of IT and demonstrates how these can be used to create innovative business models.   

The programme also features a course on the development of information models for specific businesses and requirements as well as their systematic integration into high-performance business architectures. Students learn about advanced enterprise modelling, business process optimisation and management of enterprise application architectures.

Software & Service Management introduces students to basic methodological principles of software engineering in addition to current concepts of cost-efficient planning, managing, and monitoring of entire application life cycles.
In this course, students also learn how to manage IT services using the latest reference models (e.g. ITIL, eTOM).
Students have the opportunity of broadening their horizons by taking extra courses in addition to the ones mentioned above. The Master’s programme Business Information Systems offers two specialisation courses:

Software Engineering
In this course, students gain a deeper insight into the innovative concepts and technologies which play a key role in producing industrial software solutions. Special emphasis given to the instruments used in developing enterprise DBMS and in shaping distributed application architectures. The course includes a development project which illustrates how the theoretical knowledge gained can be applied practically.
 
Enterprise Planning & Decision Support
This specialisation course deals with techniques and tools used in constructing analytical computing systems which serve to increase effectiveness and efficiency of decision-making processes in enterprises.
