The teams of our seven competence centers carry out applied research, always in touch with the latest trends. Beyond that, we support the exchange among interested specialists.

Our research represents also an important basis for the lectures in the Master's degree programmes and for our further education programmes.
What we teach and research appears also in our offer of courses for continuing education: The spectrum reaches from compact courses and seminars over Certificates and Diplomas of Advanced Studies (CAS/DAS) up to two-year master programmes (MAS) in Information Systems.
