Program Structure Overview

The Digital Enterprise Management program consists of several parts which lead to you to your exam.

The first four semesters are designed to give you an insight into business administration, computer science, digital enterprise management, and German language and culture. In the 5th semester you will get the opportunity to complete a degree program-related internship, where you can gain valuable practical experiences. On this basis you will be able to attend advanced courses and projects in the field of digital enterprise management. The degree program is completed with a thesis and oral examination. Subject to excellent results in your exam, you will have the chance to attend our Master Program Information Sytems (M.Sc.)

 

Curriculum

The curriculum is strongly based on the tried and tested “Pforzheim model”.

 

 

The curriculum encompasses the achievement of 210 credits in seven semesters. 62 of these credits are allocated to the major field of study (indicated in green in the figure above), 103 credits to cross-disciplinary courses (specifically business administration, economics, quantitative methods, ethics & social responsibility, and language skills), 28 credits to the internship semester and 17 credits to the concluding capstone assignments and thesis. Projects, internship semester, an elective module with 12 credits in 6th semester and the thesis allow students to tailor the program individually to their intended career path. Within the elective module, students can choose besides a compulsory course “e-Business and Supply Chains” among courses in the field of Digital Business Models (like Internet of Everything, Organizational Networks, and Anything-Relationship-Management) and Digital Technology Solutions (like Mobile Solutions, Smart Factory, and Big Data Management).
