Master of Science in Information Systems
The Master's degree programme builds on the content of a Bachelor's degree programme in Information Systems along the areas of internal and external application systems, integration engineering and service science as well as software engineering.
Students can flexibly adapt the content to their wishes and requirements. Among other things, they can choose from several compulsory elective modules in business information systems, management science or economics and computer science.
The high level of practical orientation prepares students for demanding subsequent work in the fields of management, consulting and development of companies. The close cooperation with partner companies from the region offers students the opportunity to network effectively at an early stage.
The Master's degree programme in Information Science is modularised and follows a clear structure. Here compulsory modules with a total of 40 credit points and compulsory elective modules with a total of 30 credit points must be completed. In addition, there is also a 30 credit point free elective area in which any Master's modules from Leipzig University can be studied or which can be used for a semester abroad. The recommended study schedule including the overview of compulsory and elective modules can be downloaded here for the start of studies in the winter semester and here for the start of studies in the summer semester.
