The programme is designed for students with a Bachelor’s degree in either business administration or computer and systems sciences (e.g., computer science, system science, informatics, information systems, etc.).
Today IT plays a very important role within the leadership and management of organisations. Based on modern IT, organisations of a new form, such as networks and virtual organisations and meeting places, have emerged on the market. To be able to develop and maintain the efficient use of scarce resources now and in the future, deep and up-to-date knowledge of information systems and organisations is necessary.

Students with a major in business administration begin with a course in computer and systems sciences and vice versa. After this course both student groups join to take courses dealing with issues related to strategic IT management. During the second year two specialisation tracks are offered. Regardless of the major of your Bachelor’s degree you can choose to focus on either computer and systems sciences or business administration. Each specialisation track consists of a variety of courses covering specific topics within the respective area. During the final semester you write a master’s dissertation.
