The field of business information systems combines business studies with information systems. Its subject is the deployment of information and communication technologies in companies as well as organisations. The degree programme enables students to design and implement such information systems by providing knowledge about business subjects and methods, application-oriented IT skills, project tasks as well as intercultural exercises and presentation training.

Two universities of applied sciences combine their expertise and offer the degree programme together. The Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU) teaches the business-related subjects, whereas the technologically-oriented courses take place at the Ulm University of Applied Sciences. The broad scope of international relations of both universities allows individual students to organise their international exchange and internship semesters abroad according to their own wishes and study requirements.

Students profit from the resources and activities of both universities such as research facilities, libraries, elective courses, childcare services, cultural programmes (orchestra, chambre choir, band, jazz combo) and events (international excursions, specialist presentations and parties).
