Master Programme MBI - International Master of Business InformaticsThe International Master of Business Informatics (MBI) is a joint international program by a network of recognized experts, all of whom are professors at well-known universities in Central Europe. The focus of this program is on the synergy between information technology (IT) and management. Business Informatics (BI) students learn how to use IT effectively to develop and manage business solutions for today's global challenges. MBI students can specialize, for example, in enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management (SCM).
The MBI program can be studied full-time or part-time, either as a 100 % distance-education program or in blended mode. The rationale underlying the distance-education mode is "virtuality". Students can avoid traveling and living expenses by studying at home or at the workplace, even in their home countries. They communicate with lecturers and fellow students via Internet. The MBI program is hosted by the School of Business Informatics which provides a virtual infrastructure for courses and administration. We offer our MBI program in both English and German.
The MBI program offers a complete course of studies leading to an accredited master's degree. For full-time students the program takes two years (four semesters) to complete, including one semester of internship or project. For part-time students duration is determined as appropriate.
MBI students need to know essential concepts of business and management. Students with a degree in business administration or a related field can immediately be accepted onto the program. Students with different degrees can also be admitted but they are required to take business courses and/or prove business knowledge.
Evaluation and exams use a credit-point system. In the distance-education mode, the majority of tests and examinations is done online, not requiring candidates to travel. The final exam, however, is a supervised one.

Target audienceIn addition to an officially recognized university degree, graduates of the MBI program will also benefi t from excellent career opportunities. Demand for the skills they will learn grows year by year, making them highly marketable in job markets around the world! BI graduates are attractive not only to consulting and software firms, but to all forward-looking companies in most industries. Here they play a vital role as an interface between an enterprise’s business needs and its IT solutions - for example here that company is looking to reengineer its business processes or optimize them by making more effective use of information technology.
Typical “traditional” positions that MBI graduates can expect to fill include information manager, systems analyst/designer, project manager, ERP specialist, and developer business solutions.
They will also be ideally qualified for “new economy” functions in the electronic business and e-commerce fields, including positions like content manager, information broker, portal developer, and e-commerce specialist. In being able to study at their home or their workplace, students will avoid additional traveling and living expenses. Yet they will receive the same high-quality education that students at any European university can expect.
Practical relevanceThe practical part consists of an internship of three months or a project of one semester. Students do internships in industrial enterprises or other organizations in accordance with guidelines provided by VGU. Projects are conducted by the professors who teach in the program. A typical project goal is to create a solution for a Business Informatics problem occurring in the real world or a case study.
