The professorship represents the interdisciplinary science of business informatics. We understand business informatics on the one hand as an interface between economics and computer science and on the other hand as a link between the individual sub-disciplines of business administration.
In particular, the professorship focuses on the importance of information and communication systems for the respective individual disciplines of economics and social sciences. The professorship's field of activity differs from that of a classical business administration professorship in that it considers and deals with the complete spectrum of business administration from a computer science perspective. The professorship is involved in teaching, application-oriented research and contract research.
The goals of the professorship can be summarised as follows:
- Transfer of computer science methods to problems in economics
- Development of operationalisable and flexible solutions for economic problems
- Transfer of current theoretical knowledge and experience into teaching and practice
