Information Systems

Summary

Paderborn University, the University for the Information Society, is one of the German-speaking world’s leading facilities for Management Information Systems. We investigate and design socio-technical information systems adapted to the realities of our digital era. With five high-performing research groups in the field of Management Information Systems, we examine all levels of business operations - from digitally networked people and working groups to digital organisations and networks right up to digital markets. In addition, we also place particular emphasis on the analysis of structured and unstructured data generated by modern socio-technical systems.

With our Bachelor's programme, we offer an excellent and versatile undergraduate education in Management Information Systems. This programme consistently ranks at the top of the CHE University Ranking. An important locational advantage is the integration of the study programme into the larger Faculty of Business Administration and Economics as well as into the Faculty for Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mathematics (EIM). As a result, our undergraduate program is characterised by a balanced selection of courses in Management Information Systems, computer science, and economics. With the help of the technical and methodological skills acquired at our university, our graduates lay the foundation for a lifelong successful career in the digital society.

With our interdisciplinary Master's programme in Business Information Systems and the Master's programme in Management Information Systems (MIS), we offer highly diversified, advanced study programmes. The curricula of both programs can be tailored to individual preferences and are particularly well suited for semesters abroad. Thereby, our graduates have all the required qualifications to either occupy leading positions in the digital society or, if desired, pursue an academic career. Our Master's programmes have regularly received excellent CHE rankings.

In our research, we analyse and design information systems as human-task-technology-systems for the benefit of people, organisations and society. We examine the interaction of social structures and information technologies (cognitive object), the interaction of design and analysis (research method), as well as the interaction of basic knowledge and social benefit (research goal). The success of our research is reflected, among other things, in excellent publications, managerial positions in leading organs of publication, third-party-funded research projects, successful cooperations with organisations, and current rankings in our discipline.

We invite you to join us in shaping digital change as students, research associates, or business partners!
