The Master of Science in Information Systems (German: Wirtschaftsinformatik) at the University of Münster - School of Business and Economics is a combination of disciplines such as Computer Science, Statistics, and Business Administration, providing a unique environment for studies and research. The research aspect of the program is further strengthened by the international orientation of the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS), bringing together researchers from universities across Europe. The MSc in Information Systems graduates have skills to assess and properly configure sophisticated information technologies for use in companies and administrative departments. The study programme prepares students for careers both in research and practice. On the one hand, it facilitates students' entry into the corresponding doctoral programmes. On the other hand, the programme prepares students for future careers in the fields, which especially value comprehensive education, such as management, consulting, and software production and usage. The purpose of the study programme is, therefore, to provide students with the required in-depth scientific knowledge, skills, and competencies in the aforementioned areas.
