In more and more sectors, the use of information systems to support their business has become indispensable. Examples include service providers such as banks and insurance companies, trade or the manufacturing industry as well as public administration. The higher information intensity of products through embedded systems and the increasing cross-company networking of application systems - currently also referred to as digitalisation - leads to a further increase in information intensity, which represents both a competitive advantage and a necessity. For the development and use of business information systems, the business informatics degree programme provides well-founded knowledge at the interface between business informatics and computer science. It opens up highly attractive professional development opportunities that are by no means limited to the technical field.

"The Bachelor's programme in Business Information Systems prepares me very well for my professional life with its broad technical and practical training. In particular, the opportunity to complete an internship at a leading company during the entire 5th semester has significantly expanded my social and professional skills. The intensive insight into the diverse tasks of a business informatics specialist strengthened my decision about my career direction. I was also able to significantly expand my professional network. The degree programme is not easy, but I have found exactly the right thing for me."

"The Bachelor's programme in Business Informatics at the University of Leipzig offers first-class framework conditions for an academic education. Especially the many cooperations with companies in the region promise the potential for initial contact with interesting employers. The basic modules gave me a very good orientation for selecting the elective modules offered in the last semesters. With the completion of the Bachelor's programme, I feel professionally and organisationally able to fill a vacancy according to my qualifications."
