Do you want to pursue a career at the interface between business and IT? Do you want to engineer excellent business processes? Do you want to create IT-enabled innovations?

Join the Master’s degree programme in Information Systems at the University of Liechtenstein!
Enrolling in our programme means studying at one of the most active research groups in Europe. We offer

  • specialization in Business Process Management (BPM) and Data Science (majors, to be chosen in the 3rd semester)
  • a strong focus on process management,
  • an interdisciplinary mix of IT-related and business-related topics,
  • a tight integration between theory and practice,
  • small study groups, and
  • an excellent student-faculty ratio (nearly 5 to 1)
After gaining their Master of Science in Information Systems (MSc in Information Systems) our students have excellent career opportunities. Typically, they start working for international IT & management consultancies or industry and service companies (e.g., in financial services, telecommunications, logistics, manufacturing, or public administration).

The Master’s degree programme is arranged in a modular structure and characterized by challenging scientific courses and hands-on project work with practical relevance. Apart from the scientific focus, autonomous learning in project teams and supporting social competence lie at the core of the programme. The Master’s degree programme comprises four semesters of full-time study which correspond to 120 ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System).

During the week, the study period is usually set for Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., which supports you in both continuing your employment or entering challenging internships associated to the Master’s degree programme.
