Study content

In the International IT Business degree program, both the operational and information technology challenges of a global economy are taken into account in the curriculum. With the ability to decisively shape solutions for companies in interdisciplinary teams, you will unite many competencies in one person. We teach the necessary technical and interdisciplinary skills through a balanced mix of courses from the fields of computer science, business informatics, economics and mathematics, as well as social and personal skills. We follow the recommended standards of associations and commissions, such as the Gesellschaft für Informatik (German Informatics Society).
