Contemporary fields of study + interesting electives + practical education = successful careers

Students in the Master’s Programme in Information Systems acquire subject and method knowledge at the interface of computer science and business administration in a course of study that strongly promotes students’ personal development. The programme directly addresses the requirements of industry while at the same time providing a sound scientific education. Students also develop leadership and social skills in project seminars conducted with representatives of major companies.



In the first two semesters, students acquire fundamental business and IT knowledge. In modules like Management Information Systems and Information Systems Development, students learn how to design and use IT in professional business contexts.


In their second and third semesters, students can choose among various electives so they can specialise in any of four subject areas: Business Process Management, Data and Application Security, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence as well as Digital Innovation. The Business Process Management electives focus on the analysis, design, and implementation of business processes and cover topics like strategic alignment, governance, methods, IT, people, and culture. The Data and Application Security electives address security essentials by covering the preventive, reactive, and organisational aspects of security. The Data Science and Artificial Intelligence electives focus on the collection, management, and analysis of data and cover state-of-the-art methods from fields like artificial intelligence and machine learning, including deep learning. The Digital Innovation electives covers the development and implementation of novel and original solutions in which the innovation process, and its outcomes is embodied.
