  • Special features regarding teaching
    Our curriculum is characterised by balanced proportions of business administration and applied computer science, as well as a strong emphasis on business informatics. The objects of our business informatics are organisations of all kinds and their information and communications systems (ICS). The incorporation of ICS into the informational environment (Extended Enterprise) is given equal weighting through our e-business subjects. In the fifth semester, students undertake a practical semester in a company. Stays abroad are particularly supported. The university has almost 70 partner universities worldwide.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Stays abroad are particularly supported. The university has almost 70 partner universities worldwide. Business Informatics has appointed an international representative for these matters, who advises and can answer questions on the entire process.
  • Common partner universities for exchange
    SIIT in Bangkok, Thailand; SEU in Nanjing, China; Napier Univ. in Edinburgh,UK;Oulun Yliopisto in Oulu, Finland; Marmara Univ. in Istanbul, Turkey
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Up-to-date technical facilities are essential for business informatics. Thus outdated hardware and software is routinely replaced in the laboratories (at least once a semester). The IT infrastructure was expanded to include a mobile lab (28 laptops, laptop trolley) in summer 2015. The laboratories also make use of mobile end-devices (e.g. smartphones and tablets). We do not give preference to any special manufacturers of operating systems, software or databases.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Within the degree course, there are many academic publications on key areas of Business Informatics. The highly important practical orientation is built up through collaborations with industry and institutions. In addition, there are also research projects into current and innovative Business Informatics topics (e.g. BMBF). The Faculty manages the core competence centre Sigmaringen in the field of e-Business. Two projects that have achieved international prominence are clip2gether.com and picture4peace.org. Great attention is paid to student transparency and participation. 2 cooperative doctorates in the period 2013-2015.
  • Website with further information on research activities
  • Support for founders
    The Faculty of Business Informatics has a special contact point for questions and assistance regarding business start-ups. A lecture on business start-ups is also offered.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    Students with chronic health problems can obtain specific advice from the Deans of Students. For example, by way of individual study plans, which can be adjusted also in the current semester. Assistance is provided for the preparation and wording of applications (e.g. hardship applications to the central exam office). Special parking permits are available.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    In the Business Informatics programmes we sometimes have over 40% of students with a migration background (e.g. Business Informatics PLUS, winter semester 2014/15). The Faculty of Business Informatics is committed to diversity and practises it daily. Of course, the composition of the faculty members, members of the Business Informatics Students Association We4WI and academic staff reflects diversity.
