Your curriculum

Your Bachelor's program in Business Informatics consists of a core curriculum, an elective curriculum and an individual curriculum. Two thirds of the curriculum are so important to us that we don't want to deprive you of them (core curriculum with compulsory subjects). The rest you can choose - depending on your personal and professional interests. This means that you will complete a total of 45 ECTS in electives. In addition, you have the possibility to freely fill your studies with an individual curriculum of 15 ECTS, even outside the boundaries of business informatics in the narrower sense.

Your individual know-how

You would like to attend courses outside the boundaries of Business Informatics and additionally educate yourself in other areas?

If you study at the FERNFH, you have the possibility to complete micro-credentials in the following topics outside your own study program:

A Micro-Credential is a qualification certificate that you receive after successfully completing a learning pathway (several courses) at FERNFH. You can complete the MCs during your study time at FERNFH and thus individually compile and continuously expand your portfolio of skills and know-how, depending on your personal or professional interests.
