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.


Direkt in die Forschung mit einem Studium der Wirtschaftsinformatik

Auf dem Campus der Saar-Uni gibt es eine Reihe von Forschungsinstituten der Spitzenklasse. Viele Wissenschaftler, die dort arbeiten, lehren auch an der Uni. Studierende profitieren davon: Sie können hier schon im Studium forschen. So wie Mirco Pyrtek, der bereits während des Bachelorstudiums mit seinen Forschungen begonnen hatte und mittlerweile eine Stelle am DFKI inne hat. "Es ist schon anspruchsvoll, aber es lohnt sich. Die Zeit ist gut investiert. Ich lerne viel dazu und kann das Gelernte direkt umsetzen. Außerdem lernt man viele Leute aus aller Welt kennen", sagt Pyrtek, der gerade mit seiner Forschergruppe auf der Hannover Messe war. [mehr...]
