Bachelor of Science | Business Information Systems

Specializing in Data Science


GENERAL OVERVIEW

Digitization is leading to enormous volumes of data being stored. As a Business Informatics Specialist, you will analyze and manage large and typically complex volumes of data, which you will prepare in such a way that important information can be extracted. As a data processing professional, you will then derive the best possible recommended actions for the company from this or develop innovative solutions. You will act as an interface between the business management and IT worlds at the company by deploying your business management skills and expertise.

Your academic course at the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University in Mannheim is linked to practical training in the entire IT-related area, supplemented by deployments in commercial departments, such as Logistics, Supply Chain Management, Controlling, Purchasing and Finance.

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.
