Master of Science
Admission Type below
The degree programme promotes the handling of complex issues and enables the realisation of both economic and information technology concepts.
In terms of content, the programme is divided into four module strands:
- Scientific Fundamentals:
Principles of scientific and team-oriented work as well as the application of mathematical models for problem solving.
- Business Analysis and Modelling:
From the analysis and modelling of operational processes via requirements engineering to digital business models and their representation.
- Business Application Systems:
From the conception and use of operational systems in the company to the preparation and analysis of the resulting data as a basis for decision-making.
- IT Management:
From the implementation and management of individual projects in the IT environment to short- to long-term planning of the company-wide IT infrastructure.
The flexible design of the modules allows you to study on a self-organised part-time basis. The courses are held partly in German and partly in English.
You can find the recommended course of study for you, depending on the valid SPO, under "Downloads and links".
neu: The Master's programme builds on the Bachelor's programme in Information Systems at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. It is designed to give graduates the opportunity to gain further qualifications in this subject area with a scientifically oriented Master's degree and thus to recommend themselves for a prominent position in the planning, selection, development and project planning of economic IT applications.
alt: The Business Information Systems master’s degree course builds on Augsburg UAS’s bachelor’s degree program Information Systems. It offers the Business Information Systems bachelor graduates the opportunity to gain further qualifications in this subject area with an academically-based master’s program. This allows them to apply for high-level positions in the fields of planning, selection, development or project planning of business-related IT applications. Students deal with complex questions and develop the ability to realize both business-related concepts and concepts in the field of information technology.
Career as an expert in business
Our graduates are sought-after personalities in the business world. Through the practical and application-oriented study programme, we create digital specialists whose expertise and innovative spirit are of central importance for our company partners and our region.
Career as a digital founder
Putting one's own ideas into practice, realising one's own potential or the dream of a lucrative exit. For more and more university graduates, founding their own company is a promising career alternative. As an entrepreneurial university, the HSA offers an ideal environment for trying things out and getting started. The HSA_funkenwerk provides support in the form of lectures, incubator programmes, coaching, events and much more.
Career as a young researcher
The research institutes at the Faculty of Computer Science also offer interested students the opportunity to join the scientific community as a research assistant or staff member.
The HSA_innos (Institute for Innovative Security) works on IT security issues on behalf of companies and public funding bodies: from the development of secure products to forensic analyses and the securing of entire industrial plants.
The HSA_ired (Institute of Resource Efficient Data Transmission and Processing), consisting of four research groups from the faculties of computer science and electrical engineering, develops highly innovative solutions for the efficient processing of data in areas such as autonomous driving, image processing, artificial intelligence, radar technology or embedded systems.
The HSA_ias (Institute for Agile Software Development) develops innovative software solutions for digitalisation projects together with partners from business and research. Agile system development methods are applied and further developed.

Information about admission requirements
neu: The qualification requirement for admission to the programme is a Bachelor's degree in Information Systems completed at a university with above-average success, or an equivalent university degree with usually 7 semesters (210 ECTS points).
The selection of applicants is based on the grade of the Bachelor's degree. Currently, the HS Augsburg requires a grade point average of 2.5 or better.
Applicants with a Bachelor's degree who have earned less than 210 ECTS but at least 180 ECTS can also be admitted. They have to acquire the credit points missing for the required 210 ECTS within the first year after enrolment through post-qualification.
For graduates of a Bachelor's degree programme in Information Systems, the post-qualification can be achieved by taking elective subjects from the catalogue of the Faculty of Computer Science for Bachelor's degree programmes or further elective subjects of the Master's degree programme. For graduates of other degree programmes, the examination board can determine individual courses as a substitute that must be taken for the post-qualification. Subjects that were already part of the first degree programme cannot be taken.
The courses offered in the degree programme "Business Information Systems" of the Faculty of Computer Science include German-language (compulsory) courses. Examinations are also held in German. German language skills of at least level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages CEFR (corresponds to DSH-1 or TestDaF level 3) are therefore essential for a successful course of studies.
alt: To qualify for admission to this degree program, students need to have completed a bachelor’s degree in Information Systems or a comparable university degree with an above-average grade. As a rule, they should have studied for 7 semesters and have attained 210 ECTS credit points.
Selection will be based on the grade the student attained for his/her bachelor’s degree. Currently, the required grade is an average of at least 2.5.
Applicants with a bachelor’s degree who have attained less than 210 ETCS but at least 180 ETCS can also be admitted. These students are required to make up the missing credit points to 210 ETCS within the first year of the course.
Graduates with a B.Sc. in Information Systems can make up missing credit points by completing elective courses offered by the Faculty of Computer Science for its bachelor’s programs, or by completing electives offered as part of the master’s program. For graduates of other degree programs, the examination board can stipulate individual courses that must be attended in order to make up the missing credit points. Courses taken as part of the first degree program cannot be repeated.
The syllabus of the Business Information Systems course at the Faculty of Computer Science stipulates that the (compulsory) classes are to be held in German. Examinations are also held in German. Students therefore require German proficiency of at least level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) (corresponds to DSH-1 and TestDaF level 3) in order to complete the course successfully.
