Business Informatics and Digital Transformation Bachelor (5th Semester)
Course code: WINB5ADAIL
Course Content: The students deal with the interface between IT and management and develop prototype applications of the techniques from the field of data mining (the conversion of data into information) for decision and prognosis processes. Opportunities, technologies and framework conditions for data mining are developed as examples, by means of prognoses for the customer behaviour. The students are therefore able to develop concepts for a centralised data management and to design a clearly regulated acquisition, maintenance and utilisation management and to implement this with modern tools.

Additional cultural and language courses are offered by the International Office. You may also choose courses from other programmes, as e.g. Business Management or Business Informatics and Digital Transformation if you fulfill the course prerequisites.
