Program Structure

The Master’s program International Management & Information Systems ‑ Online (IMIS Online) is a professional part-time course that is conducted online apart from two on-campus phases. The program has a standard period of study of four semesters, a volume of 90 credits, and comprises thirteen compulsory modules as well as a Master's project consisting of a Master's thesis (21 credits) and a colloquium (4 credits).

The modules in the first three semesters have a scope of 20 credits. The fourth semester, which includes a module on Research Methods in addition to the Master's project, comprises 30 credits.

Studying online and on-site

The concept of eLearning within all semesters enables studying flexibly at any location and at any time. However, an introductory attendance week and a 14-day attendance summer camp distinguish the program from pure online formats and offer additional social networking opportunities and didactic potential (e.g., interactive formats in the group and with the lecturers).

The online study program is coordinated via the learning management system Moodle, which is used to carry out the modules. In addition to the common Moodle-activities, e-lectures and web-based trainings are also used in many modules.

Forms of Assessment

The examinations in the individual modules are carried out either in the form of seminar papers, project works, portfolio examinations, or as written and oral examinations in the scope of the summer camp (attendance is compulsory).
