From October 2014, HSBA will offer a dual study programme in Business Informatics for the first time. With a comparatively large share of practice-based content for a business informatics degree, the study programme is geared to activities on the interface between traditional business functions on the one hand and IT on the other. While all important aspects of business (finance, marketing, accounting, economics, human resources …) will be dealt with in the business administration part of the programme, the business informatics part will focus on software (design, programming, software engineering and project management). Other central areas of informatics, for example database systems, will round off the course schedule. Students can use electives to specialise either in business administration or in business informatics.
The programme is held about 75% in German and about 25% in English.
The programme starts on October 1 each year.
Study organisation and duration
The dual programme integrates phases of theory at the university (on average 32 weeks a year) and practical phases of training in their training company (on average 20 weeks a year). Total duration of studies is three years.
The tuition fees for the courses starting in 2014 are EUR 580 per month.
Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) with 180 ECTS
The programme is going to be accredited by the FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation).
