The use of business software systems (Business Information Systems) for the efficient implementation of business processes is as natural as it is widespread in companies today. However, the dynamics of the megatrend of digitalisation present companies with enormous challenges in managing their network of integrated business information systems, which has grown over many years, developing them innovatively and keeping them fit for the future. The business data held in these systems is also increasingly in the foreground as the basis and result of companies' business activities, as it forms the foundation of data-driven decisions and business models. With Business Information Systems Engineering, our German language Master's degree programme at THI, you will prepare yourself professionally and methodically for activities in these extremely practice-relevant subject areas.
