Information Systems and Management

Training for information systems managers is characterized by linking economics-related fields (particularly business administration) and the computer science field with a focus on operational IT systems.

Occupational fields for information systems managers are based on business and management-related tasks and the opportunities that information technology offers when it comes to providing support for those tasks. The fundamental principle in this regard is that “process drives IT”. This means that information technology must not be used for its own purposes; instead, it must align itself to the tasks and requirements of business and management in order to help the institution in question to effectively and efficiently achieve its business objectives. It is the information systems manager’s job to act as the bridge between the business world characterized by business administration and the opportunities presented by information technology.

The Information Systems and Management degree programme therefore also offers both a solid foundation in business administration and its related fields, as well as an in-depth insight into the core modules of theoretical and, in particular, practical and applied computer science.
