Course schedule

General studies

General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.

APPLICATION AND ENROLMENT

Recommended abilities/ target groups/ requirements placed on students

The study of Information Systems and Management includes to a large extent the examination of methods of computer science, statistics and mathematics. Unfortunately, poor previous knowledge - especially in mathematics - often leads to the failure of students.
For a successful start to their studies, first-year students should have the following key competences and aptitudes: Ability to work in a team, interest in economics, informatics and computers, good time management, communication skills and willingness to learn.
