The Bachelor's degree programme in Business Computing (B. Sc.) combines content from the area of business administration, information technology and specific core areas of business computing. Graduates combine specialized knowledge and competences from all three areas and thus assume an important interface function. The career prospects range from software development and IT operations to project, product or team management.
During your studies, you have the opportunity to already pursue individual study and career paths by specializing in different fields of business information technology and related areas.
The dual practice-integrated bachelor's programme builds on the existing direct study programme in business computing and uses two learning locations: the university and the practice partner. In six practical transfer modules, students can experience the professional contexts of business computing at the practice partner. The theoretical knowledge and skills acquired at the university are applied in the business of the practice partner. In doing so, processes and problems of business practice are to be recognized, analyzed and scientifically founded, economically meaningful solutions are to be worked out.
Advantages of dual studiesOpen areaClose area
In the dual study program, students have an educational contract with a practice partner of the university in addition to their role as student at TH Wildau. The practice partners are organizations (mostly companies) from the region of Berlin and Brandenburg.
The practice partners offer students concrete career prospects as well as a salary already during their study programme. Practice partners thus invest in the education of their dual students and have a great interest in their professional development. Some of the companies also have international locations, so that a stay abroad is possible.
Course contentsOpen areaClose area
In the first three semesters, fundamental knowledge is imparted. This core knowledge is divided into general contents, information technology contents, business administration and business computing contents.
In the 4th and 5th semesters, two specialisations are chosen, at least one of which is from business computing. In the 6th semester, the specialisations are further deepened at the practice partner and the bachelor thesis follows. The entire 6th semester takes place at the learning location of the practice partner.

The study programme is closely interlinked with practical phases. During the regular lecture period, the courses usually take place on four days at the TH Wildau. An additional day is available for the dual students to work at the practice partner. Arrangements regarding working hours and location are made individually between students and practice partners. The examination period is reserved for examinations; in the re-examination period, students are released from work for examinations that they may have to make up. During the lecture-free period, students take their leave and complete work for the practice transfer modules or write their final thesis.
