The obtained master's degree (M.Sc.) will qualify the graduates according to international standards also for obtaining a Ph.D. in the field of Information systems Research (ISR), e.g. in cooperation with Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences or Universidad Tecnológica Nacional Mendoza.
The Master's degree programme in Business Intelligence and Business Analytics covers both organisational knowledge and technological know-how. Besides more advanced knowledge of administration systems, students also gain a thorough insight into management concepts and supporting information technologies that ensure and improve companies' business efficiency. The special focus here is on Corporate Performance Management (CPM), which uses Business Intelligence (BI) for support in all corporate areas.
The degree programme also looks at quantitative methods and analytical applications with the aim of using the flood of business data profitably.
A compulsory semester abroad at the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional Mendoza in Argentina or the Cape Peninsula of Technology in South Africa helps raise students' awareness of international specifics.
The costs for travel, accommodation and living expenses during the semester abroad have to be covered by the participants themselves. For 10 students deciding to spend their exchange semester in Argentina, the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) provides limited funds for travel and accommodation expenses.
