Contents of Information Management

Information management deals with the use, planning and control of external and internal information within a company or other organisation, taking into account content and various forms of media. Within this context, information is understood as a production factor. The management of information has the task of ensuring the availability of the production factor information and offering suitable means to meet the demand for information. This includes in particular the organisation and maintenance of private, public and scientific institutions for the supply of information.

In the bachelor's programme you will learn the methods and technical knowledge for information handling in a practice-oriented way. This includes, for example, the creation of databases for literature, media or object documentation, electronic publishing and the use of standard software for various purposes such as research, preparation and evaluation of information. Knowledge of applied computer science and professional skills in the use of modern information technology are also part of your future qualifications. Courses on the business management of information facilities and knowledge management as well as training in communication skills will supplement your education.

Intensive internship phases are a particular advantage of our degree program: they comprise five months in the fourth semester and several weeks in the seventh semester. You can also write your Bachelor's thesis on a topic of practical and industry relevance in cooperation with a company or organization. Extensive project work, excursions and seminars by distinguished guest lecturers from the business world enable you to participate directly in current developments in the information industry.

As an information manager, you also have a great degree of responsibility: you ensure that the right information is available at the right time in the right form and for the right target group. In addition to professional qualifications, a sense of responsibility, teamwork and communication skills are therefore important prerequisites for a successful professional career.
