The Business Information Systems degree programme at the TU Darmstadt is defined by its distinct interdisciplinary nature. I contains parts of both the Business Studies (business administration and economics) and Law on the one hand and Business Information Systems on the other to nearly the same extent.
The Master’s degree programme Business Information Systems focuses on a smaller scale on the informatics area of specialisation than the non-business Informatics degree programme. Otherwise the students of Business Information Systems attend the same courses as their fellow students who study Computer Science. Additionally, the students are trained in the fields of Business Administration and Economics, acquire fundamental knowledge of law, and learn Business Informatics.
The Master of Science programme Business Information Systems deepens and expands the skills and knowledge acquired in the Bachelor’s degree programme for planning, developing, and managing information and communications systems. Located at the interface of Business Studies and Informatics, the programme is particularly characterised by its research orientation. The Master’s degree includes various other forms of learning to work scientifically (seminar papers, research papers, Master’s Thesis) in order to gain initial experience in basic and applied research. The programme caters to personal preferences by offering numerous electives and areas of specialisation. Therefore, we recommend that you attend the introductory lecture “Introduction to the Master’s Degree Programme” offered by the department at the beginning of your Master’s programme.
An additional commercial internship serves the qualification of students. A completed commercial training or a completed vocational training in the field of information and communications technology may be taken into account completely or partially. If possible, the 12-week internship should be completed before the start of the program; it must, however, be completed no later than by the day of registering for the last subject exam. During the programme, it is possible to do the internship abroad as well as spend entire semesters in a foreign country.
