Study Content

Digital Business: course overview

Become an expert in digital business: In the distance learning Digital Business programme, you receive comprehensive training in business and technological basics. You immerse yourself in current topics of digitalisation and deal with digital business models. In modules such as “Digital Future Commerce”, "Einführung in die Low-Code Entwicklung” or “Data Analytics und Big Data”, you acquire the skills necessary for working in digital companies. In addition, you can pick electives or tracks, such as Marketing, Web & Mobile Development, Data Analysis & Machine Learning or IT Management.


Our bachelor's programme has a modular structure, i.e., you study based on subject areas that are divided into so-called modules. After successfully completing the modules, you are credited with ECTS points (European Credit Transfer System), which document your achievements. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and, of course, recognised.


Below you will find an overview of the German-language study variant. You can find more information about the English-language study variant in the module handbook linked below.

Fees

Study model and prices for the Bachelor's online study programme in Digital Business

Depending on your personal or professional situation, full-time study is not always easy to manage. That is why we have also developed part-time programmes for all our degrees, which offer flexible and longer study periods. This way, you can study alongside your job or during your time off, whether at home or abroad. The content of the different models is identical. Depending on the study model, we will adjust your tuition fees accordingly. With the part-time variants, your weekly study workload is reduced.
