The Foundation for a successful Career

Educational Concept

In education, we are involved in various sub-disciplines of economics and MINT subjects, such as business informatics and industrial engineering. The central aim of our education in all courses of study is to familiarise our students with the latest methods and concepts at the interface between financial management and business informatics in an integrative manner, as well as to promote interdisciplinary competences and soft skills. In this way, we want to provide our students with the necessary professional and “soft” skills that they will need later in their careers, for example as project managers in interdisciplinary projects. In order to gain interesting and important practical insights during their studies, we always incorporate the latest findings and practical experience into our courses. Students benefit directly from our network of renowned practice partners. At the Universities Bayreuth and TU Munich in Bavaria, we concentrate our teaching on topics at the interface between financial management and business informatics as well as on questions of value-oriented corporate management using methods of finance and information management.
