New Master's degree course: Information Systems from winter semester 2024/25

The University of Bayreuth is expanding its range of courses for students who want to shape the digital transformation at the interface of business and computer science. The Master's degree programme in Information Systems (M.Sc.) is another interdisciplinary degree programme that focuses on the opportunities of digitalization and seamlessly follows on from the successful Bachelor's degree programme in Information Systems. From April 15, prospective students can enrol for the start of the winter semester, even if they have not studied the Bachelor's degree course in Information Systems in Bayreuth.

The digital transformation is challenging our society and economy, opening up new opportunities, but also risks. They are changing the business processes of small and medium-sized companies as well as those of large corporations. The new Master's degree program in Information Systems (M.Sc.) at the University of Bayreuth prepares students to reflect on this digital change at the interface of business and computer science, but also to actively help shape it.

"The Master's degree in Information Systems is the logical step towards expanding knowledge of digitalization and deepening it with individual specializations. The wide range of Master's courses in Information Systems at the University of Bayreuth opens up a variety of subject combinations and specialization options," explains Prof. Dr. Torsten Eymann, holder of the Chair of Information Systems.

The Master's degree program in Information Systems teaches theories, methods and demonstrates the practical applications of Information Systems and its related disciplines. The aim is to deepen the fundamental understanding from the Bachelor's degree and to develop a critical awareness of possible challenges and limitations. The course consists of a basic module area, two specialization areas, the supplementary module area and concludes with a Master's thesis.

Graduates of the Master's degree course in Information Systems have a very broad range of possible careers in companies and organizations of all sizes and industries. The advancing digitalization in all areas of the economy and society as well as the shortage of skilled workers underpin the career opportunities for graduates.
