Study programme

Digitalization, Innovation and Information Management Master of Science

Two subject-specific cultures – one degree programme

The master's programme navigates the area of tension between the opportunities and the risks of increasing digitalisation and relies on interdisciplinary cooperation to understand the complexity of processes and workflows. To be eligible for entry, students must demonstrate competence in informatics or business administration. A particularly innovative facet of this degree programme is the close collaboration between teachers and students from different subject-specific cultures, who mutually contribute their expertise. The linchpin of the master's programme is a one-year master's project, which usually takes place in collaboration with a company.

Why choose this programme

  • Practice-based studies working on projects

    At the core of the programme is the one-year master's project, in which the students, in cooperation with a company or another organisation, investigate an example of the topic of digitalisation and develop the project with an orientation towards application and research.
  • Topic-based modules flank the projects

    The professional foundations for tackling the challenges of digitalisation in companies, organisations and society are imparted in topic-based modules.
  • Research and innovation

    Current research topics related to the digitalisation of companies and organisations or from social discussions are always incorporated into the collaborative work with the students.

Actively shape digitalisation

Take responsibility for innovations in the context of digitalisation

The requirements of environmental, economic and social sustainability will shape the future development of companies and organisations. Without appropriate digitalisation strategies, these goals will be difficult to achieve. These challenges have to be faced by small and medium-sized enterprises as well as large corporations across all sectors. This means that the job market for experts in digitalisation is broadly diversified – from consulting and developing digitalisation strategies to implementing interdisciplinary projects.

The employability of our students is expressed in the attractiveness of the programme content for companies and organisations. Our students are often already recruited during their studies.

Studying at the interface between informatics and business administration

Design and implementation of interdisciplinary projects

The master's programme in Digitalisation, Innovation and Information Management is an application-oriented programme that starts at the interface between informatics and business administration. The core of the programme is the one-year master's project, in which our students develop solutions for a practice-based topic proposal in cooperation with companies or organisations.
The master's programme takes three semesters (90 CP) to complete. Most of the courses are taught in German, with a smaller number taught in English. The allocation of places aims for an interdisciplinary mix of students.
