Practical orientation

“I have always been interested in Information Technology. However, Information Technology alone would be too theoretical for me, so I chose Business Information Systems I particularly like the practical orientation at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences. There are practical laboratories for each theoretical module. As the semester speaker, I can also say that there is a very friendly feel. In Esslingen, we don’t just learn, there’s also a social life around it.”
