This module is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in business information systems and international management. It provides a unique combination of business and information technology and focuses on opportunities emerging from an increasingly digitalized and globalized economy in Europe.
Lectures will cover different aspects of digitalization, business information systems and information management.
Following a highly interactive approach, lectures provide theoretical and practical insights into pivotal topics of the digital economy, including digital business models, business analytics, information management, and emerging technologies, e.g. blockchain.
The course will be held in live and the material will be uploaded on our digital learning platfom, so that the students can easily work with reading material already before the course begins.
After completing the module successfully, students will have a broad understanding of how to identify and capture benefits from digital opportunities in Europe.
A guided tour of the city of Würzburg will give you an idea of the city and surroundings, and the company visit - insight into German business culture.
There are no prerequistes except for a basic knowledge in the fields of business management and economics. The language of instruction is English, thus language proficiency on an advanced Intermediate level (B2) is a prerequisite for participation. You can assess your language skills here (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) in order to get orientation as to your language skills.

Tickets can be purchased via internet on bahn.de or at ticket vending machines located in the train hall. If you need further assistance regarding the ticket purchasing process or your train departure, you will find a "Deutsche Bahn"-travel centre in the same building.
