General questions

  • How do I apply for the program?

    Find out everything you need to know about applying here.

  • What are the examination regulations, and why do I need to read them?

    The examination regulations of your program lay out the rights and obligations you have as a student of your program. They can be considered as the contractual basis for your studies at the University of Mannheim. We therefore advise you to read the examination regulations carefully before you begin your studies, and to watch out for any changes. You are not required to know the examination regulations by heart, but you should read them through at least once and be aware of the most important regulations.

  • Can I spend a semester abroad? How do I apply?

    You are not obliged to go abroad during your studies. However, we are happy to assist you if you wish to do so. Further information can be found under International.

  • Degree plans and course schedules

    Degree plan

    To obtain your bachelor’s degree, you need to collect a total of 180 ECTS credits (according to the European Credit Transfer System), usually within a standard period of study of six semesters.

    The courses set in the first four semesters will teach you the fundamentals of computer science, business administration, mathematics, and business informatics. During your fifth and sixth semester, you will have the chance to specialize in an area by choosing specialization courses in business administration, informatics, or business informatics. From the fourth semester onwards, the acquisition of soft skills will form an integral part of the curriculum, as these important key competences are highly sought after by employers.

  • Bachelor's thesis

    In your fifth semester, a seminar will be offered to prepare you for your final thesis. You will then write the bachelor’s thesis over a period of three months, during which you will scientifically work on a given topic.

    Finding a supervisor and topic for your bachelor’s thesis requires early planning and initiative on your part. It is primarily your responsibility as a student to contact a chair that fits your study profile. This means that you need to contact several chairs or professors on your own initiative in order to find someone who will agree to supervise your thesis. It is the norm that students contact the chairs personally, and something we expect from students at our school.

    Students of Business Informatics have the option to write their thesis either at an Informatics chair or a Business Informatics chair.

    You can find an overview of all Informatics chairs at the School of Business Informatics and Mathematics here.
