Program Highlights

The University of Bamberg's offerings in the field of Information Systems include distinct programs tailored to blend technology and management with a global perspective. “Wirtschaftsinformatik” (Information Systems, B.Sc. and M.Sc.): This program places its focus on the information processes within companies, acting as the link between specialist departments and IT units. Its core objective is to analyze and design digital business models and processes, ensuring optimal information supply within organizations. The curriculum is designed to provide the technical knowledge and managerial skills necessary to navigate and innovate within the digital landscape of business operations. International Information Systems Management (IISM, B.Sc. and M.Sc.): This program shares a focus on the analysis and design of digital business models and processes, similar to the Wirtschaftsinformatik program, but with a clear objective of managing information systems from an international standpoint. It prepares students to manage and operate IT systems across borders, emphasizing the global aspect of digital business processes and the international supply of information. Both programs aim to develop expertise in creating and managing sophisticated digital solutions that support organizational goals. Students in these programs are expected to become proficient in bridging the gap between technical possibilities and business needs, equipped with the knowledge to lead in the digital transformation of business practices. For those interested in distance learning opportunities, the Virtual International Information Systems (VIAI) program is also available, which offers a similar curriculum to the on-campus programs, but delivered in a flexible, online format.
