Web-based Systems professionals

The core of the qualification profile and hence the primary training objective is all-round knowledge of Web-based systems at a high level.

The typical features of this degree program include the development of skills for recognizing patterns and processes and for rapid familiarization with new topic areas. These kinds of systems may be located on the public Web (Cloud services, content management systems, e-commerce systems, etc.) or inside the company (ECMS, CRM, portal systems). 

Combining technology & management

At the forefront of the degree program is the development of wide-ranging technical knowledge in the fields of Web communication and information systems. Alongside the key properties of distributed IT infrastructures such as scalability, security and availability, the portfolio of the Master’s program includes tried-and-tested skills in the management of complex software system development and introduction processes. These elements are complemented by subject knowledge on the social impact of Web-based software systems (social software).

In addition, professional project and quality management is integrated into the teaching content and elective subjects are used to individualize the training profile. Thanks to the unique overlap of content with the Master’s degree program in “Digital Marketing”, students of both programs learn an interdisciplinary way of working and are thus prepared for the challenges of heterogeneous working environments.
