Who is the study course aimed at and what career prospects does it offer?
IMIS builds on a four years Bachelor’s degree (consists of at least 210 ECTS) in business, business informatics, economics, or similar field of studies. The program is aimed at developing students' knowledge in business, management, and IT.
The program is designed for business, business informatics, economics graduates who are seeking first-hand experience in business, management, and IT throughout the study program in a blended learning environment. In the second semester, students have the advantage to choose their desired career path either in business management, or IT, or a combination of both by selecting external options such as internship, study abroad, elective modules. Therefore, a total of 90 ECTS are spread across 3 semesters, resulting in a rational distribution of workload in the respective semesters.
The objective of the IMIS Master’s study is to prepare students for future leadership roles considering the requirements of modern information and communication systems. Along with the further development of expert knowledge, a core objective is the development of self-management, social, and methodological competencies.
How is the study course structured? / Overview of the study course
The Master’s program International Management & Information Systems (IMIS) prepares students for leadership roles in a globalized economy where the intelligent use of IT systems is becoming a critical success factor. Therefore, the English-language degree course is meeting this demand by offering a two-fold qualification where IT-related subjects are coupled with key Business Administration competencies.
State-of-the-art technologies allow for exclusive distance-learning opportunities and an optional integrated study abroad or practical experience (internship) semester provides students with additional career prospects.
The program has a standard period of study of three semesters starting in the summer semester, a volume of 90 credits, and comprises a Master's project consisting of a Master's thesis (16 credits) and a colloquium (4 credits).
