Program Structure

The Bachelor’s program is divided into three years of study, each of which contains two semesters.

In the first year of study (first and second semesters), a basic education in information technology takes place (programming, algorithms, business systems/computer networks). Additionally, general principles and methods of business administration are taught together with the other Bachelor programs at the Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society.

During the second year of study (third and fourth semesters), students acquire advanced knowledge of business information technology (software development, development of user systems, e-Business). Furthermore, program-specific courses designed to deepen foundational knowledge are also offered jointly to all students in the Department.

In the third year of study (fifth and sixth semesters), program specialization is carried out during the fifth semester. The sixth semester contains the practical component and concludes with the preparation of the Bachelor’s thesis.

In the second and third years of study, the major modules are complemented by additional courses in soft skills/ethics and a required foreign language.
