Why Business Information Technology?

Business Information Technology is still a young discipline within the field of applied computer science. As a specialist in business information technology, you represent an interdisciplinary science that combines, above all, the two disciplines of computer science and business administration. Thus, you take on the role of designer and bridge builder.

Specialists in business information technology, for example, analyze the information system requirements of specialist departments, process this information and ensure technical implementation. They need good communication skills for their work as they often work in advisory and mediating roles.
