The field of information systems brings together aspects of information technology, communication, and business administration. The MSc in Information Systems is therefore offered jointly by the Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Natural Sciences. As well as being both research-oriented and interdisciplinary, the program tackles practice-related questions and issues in the field. Students deepen their knowledge and capabilities in information systems, economics, and informatics, for example, in the areas of application development, software technology, operating systems, databases, Internet technologies, e-business, and process modeling.
They learn to classify relevant theories and concepts, apply tools and methods, analyze and solve practical problems, and act responsibly with regard to the impact of technological developments.
