Bachelor of Arts | Business Administration

Specializing in Digital Business Management


GENERAL OVERVIEW

The world is becoming increasingly digital. Networking and intelligent process design are important topics in all sectors of the economy. Are you interested in the relationships between business and information technology? Are you keen to design digital transformation processes at a company? With a mix of business administration and IT, the Digital Business Management degree course is the ideal preparation for understanding and ultimately implementing business processes and digital procedures in a targeted way.
Alternating between theoretical studies at the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University in Mannheim and vocational training at Pepperl+Fuchs, you will pass through various commercial departments and interfaces between business administration and IT. Right at the start of your course, you will gain insight into production-related areas and experience first-hand how our sensors and electronic devices are manufactured.

You can find further information on the contents of the course on the web pages of the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University in Mannheim.


DURATION OF STUDY / SCHEDULE

All courses start on October 1 each year and take 3 years (6 semesters).

Students on the dual study program generally complete a 1-month pre-study internship at Pepperl+Fuchs (starting on September 1) before officially starting their degree course. Our application portal is open from March onward for the subsequent training year. However, since most places are assigned some time before the start of studies, you should ideally already apply a year before you are due to complete your school-leaving qualification.
