Information Systems

Summary

Sustainability research, cultural research, education, management and entrepreneurship: Through these four science initiatives, in course work and research, Leuphana University of Lüneburg addresses the challenges of civil society in the 21st century. The bodies responsible for these initiatives are the faculties newly established in 2010: Education, Culture, Business und Sustainability. There are research topics spanning multiple faculties – in keeping with developments of current and future relevance – devoted to the Democracy, Digital Media and Health.

The institute of information systems offers two study programs. In the college, we offer a major in business information systems (in German). In the graduate school, we offer an innovative and international program in management & data science (in English). Furthermore, the graduate school offers a structured PhD program, which is open for information system students.

Bachelor Programs

The Major in Business Information Systems constitutes its own field of knowledge, which has developed from the combination of information technology, communication and business administration. At Leuphana the "IWI" major allows students to specialize in business information systems.

Students acquire a fundamental understanding of the field of programming, computer architecture and operating systems, data bases, software technology, data structures and algorithms as well as theoretical computer sciences.

If you select business information systems as your concentration, you will become specialized in the application of computer science to business administrative questions. In particular you will be concerned with the topic of application development and internet technology as well as specialized topics in business information systems. Students acquire basic qualifications so that you can develop and apply computer science concepts to the practical business environment.
