Wirtschaftsinformatik auf Englisch studieren

The BSc Business Information Technology program is offered in English in Basel and Brugg-Windisch or in German in Olten. The content of the courses is identical, and both programs can be completed in full-time or part-time mode.

As a business information technology graduate, you will find a broad professional field with a variety of tasks in the IT industry, management consulting or in the IT department of companies and public administrations. In your work, you will take into account not only the needs of users, but also the technical, organizational and financial framework conditions. In order to find the best possible solution, you will communicate with all relevant business and IT stakeholders, both inside and outside the company, use techniques to elicite business requirements and describe them using appropriate modelling techniques. There are sheer endless job opportunies out there and in the future, as digitalization dramatically increases the need of professionals who have a deep understanding of both business and informatics.

Thanks to our good contacts with foreign universities and universities of applied sciences, a semester abroad is possible without prolonging your studies.
