Cooperation programme Wü/Li - Information Systems

There is a cooperation programme between the Faculty of Business Management and Economics and the University of Liechtenstein in Vaduz for students for Master students in “Information Systems”.

  • Degree: M.Sc. in Information Systems (Würzburg)/ M.Sc. in Information Systems (Liechtenstein)
  • Application deadline: end of april
  • Fees: no tuition fees at partner university
  • Programme advisor: Prof. Dr. Axel Winkelmann

The double degree programme offers a fully integrated study structure over 4 semesters.

Students in this degree programme generally complete 60 ECTS in Würzburg. They then transfer to Liechtenstein for one year, where they complete the remaining 60 ECTS. The programme concludes with a Master's thesis in Liechtenstein.

Tradition and modernity

The exchange programme gives students from Würzburg and Liechtenstein the opportunity to further their professional and personal development. Both universities have their own individual strengths: On the one hand, the traditional comprehensive university, where students from all disciplines benefit from a great tradition and breadth of expertise. On the other hand, a young, dynamic and modern university that is fully committed to the topics of tomorrow.

The programme is tailored to the combination of classic business informatics and cutting-edge topics:

  • Practical teaching of core topics in business informatics through the Business Software 1 and 2 modules and the project seminar
  • Exciting new topics such as artificial intelligence
  • High thematic flexibility thanks to a wide range of elective options
  • Interdisciplinary topics through cross-faculty electives

Networking and career

But the programme also has advantages beyond the professional components. Students benefit from the relaxed and informal atmosphere in Liechtenstein. Thanks to the University of Liechtenstein's excellent network of alma mater contacts are made for life. Excellent research makes it possible to tackle the issues of tomorrow now. The close links between the university and the regional economy also result in good contacts, so that nothing stands in the way of a successful career.

Students have to be admitted to the master’s programme Information Systems to apply for the Double Degree Programme. Please send a short CV, a motivation letter, and a copy of your Bachelor's degree to Michaela Briglmeir, ausland@wiwi.uni-wuerzburg.de. The application deadline is end or April of each year.
