Combining business administration and applied information technology is the basic concept behind the Business Information Technology course. You can gain the knowledge required with a varied combination of theory and practical training if you opt for HHLA’s dual study course organised in cooperation with Nordakademie in Elmshorn. The course takes seven semesters and covers 210 ECTS points.

The course

IT professional with business information skills – a dream employee for many companies. That is why this course is particularly challenging. You’ll gain a fundamental knowledge of information technology through modules on basic modern IT and software development. The economic requirements that you will apply your IT knowledge to later will relate to the areas of logistics, managerial accounting and marketing, for instance. You’ll be acquiring the skills of a good project manager along the way. The course also includes a broad range of seminars and foreign language options.

In the practical part of the training you will get to know the essential information technology and economic processes relating to seaport handling at HHLA’s container terminals in Hamburg, with the option of also working at locations abroad. You will move through many decentralised IT departments. Integrated into the project teams, you will gain in-depth knowledge of specialist areas. You will be able to help in the decentralised IT departments at the terminals with the customisation and programming of different SAP modules and see the results of your work in operational processes.
