You can choose from two major specialisations during your first semester and go either with Official Statistics or Data Analysis and Modelling.

It also has two major specialisations to choose from, either Management of Business Informatics or Data & Business. Key fields of study, in this case, are IS/ICT management, business process engineering and optimisation, project management, IS audit, data analytics, statistical methods, big data processing and even machine learning which is a buzzword nowadays.
