Special features regarding teachingA particular focus is on the integration of science and practice in digitisation: Already in the Bachelor's programme, students learn to develop methodically sound approaches to real problems in group work; classic case studies, so-called Capstone projects and design seminars in cooperation with practice; in the Master 9-month design thinking projects in cooperation with industrial companies; new teaching formats to build up required methodological know-how, e.g. online courses, "Design-oriented Research in Information Systems" (preparation for final thesis).
Special features regarding the international orientationIn addition to the university's central service centres for the promotion of study-related stays abroad, the KIT faculties for Computer Science and Economics have their own service facilities that coordinate the international cooperation between the faculties and serve as first contact points for subject-specific advice to KIT students and international exchange students. Students of the Business Informatics course are specifically supported and helped in the planning and implementation of their stay abroad.
