Master of Business and Information Systems Engineering

The Master of Science in Business and Information Systems Engineering programme prepares you in both business management as well as information systems within an international context. In our modern society no organisation can function without information systems.

About the programme

The Business and Information Systems Engineering programme seeks to train multidisciplinary, forward-looking managers who can use information and communication technology to organise, optimise and lead businesses in a rapidly globalising world. These managers of the future will be able to rely on a sound quantitative training in business economics, with business and information systems engineering as a key spearhead, and firmly grounded in the humanities as well as in engineering science.

The Business and Information Systems Engineering programme offers an advanced quantitative and science-based training in business economics and its various business disciplines (accounting and finance, marketing, production and logistics). It is analytically underpinned by insights from engineering science (mathematics and statistics, information, energy, problem-solving and designing) but also inspired by insights from the humanities as the basis for a unique interdisciplinary approach to business management. A thorough study of business economics is combined with a training in information and communication technology (ICT). The degree programme focuses on the creation, integration, management and use of information in a business context to support business management in a digital world.

Career perspectives

Our graduates are managers with an ‘innovative engineer’ mindset. They are familiar with engineering and other disciplines (mathematics, sciences, technology, IT), which enables them to support the management of organisations and to fully exploit available opportunities. They are able to align IT strategy with business strategy, to develop a business architecture in terms of business processes, information and technical IT infrastructure, and have a keen insight into innovation and competitiveness in a digital world. Drawing on their interdisciplinary knowledge, our graduates can analyse a company’s IT needs, decide on the requirements of new systems, and can model, analyse and optimise information, processes and decisions.

The Business and Information Systems Engineering degree opens many doors. In our modern society, no organisation can function without information and information systems engineers. Graduates from the Business and Information Systems Engineering programme know how a company works, and what challenges and opportunities it faces. They design creative and efficient (IT) solutions that take into account the economic, organisational and human aspects as well as the organisation’s strategic objectives.

Typical job titles are:

  • business analyst, business consultant, process manager
  • data scientist, analytics specialist, business intelligence analyst, big data specialist
  • operations manager, fintech specialist, customer intelligence director, fraud expert, compliance officer
  • information architect, systems analyst, project manager, IT manager, Chief Information Officer
