Business informatics is an interdisciplinary subject at the interface of business administration and computer science. Business informatics graduates have the economic expertise and IT skills to create computer-based information systems that meet the requirements of commercial enterprises.

Students on the Master's degree programme "Business Informatics" are taught how to use the conceptual approaches of business informatics to solve business and commercial challenges. Graduates from the M.Sc. programme have not only acquired a thorough grounding in business informatics, economics, computer science and academic and research techniques, they have also demonstrated that they can successfully undertake independent, self-organized learning and can apply appropriate methodological and analytical skills when solving challenging problems.

Business informatics at Saarland University combines the disciplines of economics and informatics and the department collaborates closely with a large number of respected institutions located on the Saarbrücken campus, including the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPII). The department also maintains fruitful cooperative ties to universities in Australia, the USA and other countries. The staff scientists and research teams in business informatics are engaged in application-driven research projects and in knowledge-sharing activities with academics and scientists in neighbouring disciplines.
