Information systems form the basis of the design, improvement, and maintenance of business processes. They have grown into the largest and most complex technical products and form a highly integrated part of the operational processes within companies.

An organization's information system is an essential component and if the system does not function as it should, it brings all other processes to a standstill. Whether multinationals, banks, insurance companies, government ministries, hospitals, travel companies or online shops, none of these can operate without a perfectly functioning information system.

The integration of IT systems in business processes requires experts who possess knowledge of both computer science and business administration. Our Master's program in Business Information Systems trains those experts.

Content of the Master's degree program in Business Information Systems

The Master's degree program in Business Information Systems (BIS) combines computer science subjects with subjects related to business management and industrial engineering and management sciences. The program covers various aspects: - The use of models in the design of information systems:

  • The implementation of models in information systems,
  • The management, specification, and analysis of company information systems.

Many of the compulsory courses are in the field of computer science and information systems. In the compulsory courses in the field of industrial engineering and management sciences, however, the emphasis lies in logistics and operational management.


You may specialize in Business Process Management, Healthcare, ICT Services or Logistics. This Master's program, therefore, forms valuable additional training for both computer scientists and technical business managers.
