TU Chemnitz Business Informatics Alumni are Especially Popular
In the university ranking published by WirtschaftsWoche, business computer scientists again rank among the top ten – a university degree is the ideal preparation for the job market
There are more than 420 universities in Germany. But which ones offer their students the best preparation for the real world? Around 500 HR managers from small, medium and large companies named their favorites. Chemnitz University of Technology made the top ten among all universities in one business-oriented field of study.
“Computer Science for Business Administration is ninth on the list and is, for the fourth time in a row, among the ten best universities in Germany,” explains Prof. Dr. Peter Gluchowski, Dean of Student Affairs for the Bachelor’s degree program in Business Information Systems as well as the Master’s degree programs in Value Chain Management and Business Intelligence & Analytics. This further underscores the fact that TU Chemnitz prepares students very well for the transition to the professional world and HR representatives have taken notice. His colleague, Prof. Dr. Barbara Dinter, continues: “We conduct research and teach according to current trends such as digitalization, big data analytics and Industry 4.0. These are competencies that are very much in demand in the job market today. Our graduates often have an employment contract even before graduation.” Prof. Dr. Michael Hinz, Dean of Student Affairs for the Bachelor’s degree program in Business Administration, regards the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration’s close cooperation with regional and national corporations and resulting thesis projects as further reasons why graduates are held in such high esteem.
Currently, approximately 100 students are enrolled in the Bachelor’s Degree Program in Business Information Systems. Around 240 are enrolled in the Master’s Degree Programs in Value Chain Management and Business Intelligence & Analytics.
The university ranking was compiled by the consulting firm Universum Gold. The results appear in the current issue of WirtschaftsWoche in the story “Uni cum laude”.
