The degree for women who want to get things moving

Increasing globalisation requires experts who can see beyond a single company’s field of activities and who are able to design and optimise business processes for entire groups of affiliated companies. Specialists who are also able to design and implement state of the art technical IT solutions for these tasks are in high demand in the German IT market.

Business Networking (eBusiness), our business information systems programme focusing on ebusiness and geared specifically towards women, focuses on the various key areas of management information systems, transaction processing systems, decision support systems and executive information systems. Students may choose to specialize in Tourism/eTourism or Marketing. Our graduates have career opportunities in all sectors of the economy. If you are interested in eBusiness and you enjoy working with people and in international settings, then Business Networking (eBusiness) is the right programme for you.
