Learning outcomes:
Knowledge in business economics is the basis for the analysis, development and adaptation of organizations and the systems used in them. The objective of this lecture is to convey essential knowledge about business administration. The comprehensiveness and depth of the selected topics are oriented on the requirements currently placed on students taking part in application-oriented study programs.
An additional objective is to provide students with a deeper insight into the core operational processes of a company and the resulting organizational and decision-making problems. To do so, students will acquire a systematic basic understanding of economic interrelationships. They will be given an overview of the relevant production factors and will study the closed loop of resource planning necessary for their efficient use.
The interrelationships between the IT sector and computer science will be established and clarified based on core processes.
