Information regarding Master's degree exams

 

For students of Betriebswirtschaftslehre and Betriebswirtschaftslehre-TQ (BWL):

A Master's degree field of specialization at BISOR consists of 22 CP (3*6 CP from modules and 4 CP from a seminar). The modules (Business Process Management, Computational Intelligence, Electronic Markets, Multiagent Systems) that are listed in the module handbook comprise of 6 CP (main modules). For students of BWL, the module Quantitative Methods (6 CP) is compulsory. Apart from that, two further modules may be selected. Each module consists of two partial examinations (four in the case of electronic markets).

The grade of each module is determined by the points achieved in each partial examination:

  • There is no final grade for each partial examination.
  • The module (6 CP) must be passed as a whole. In case of failure, the module must be repeated as a whole.
  • In particular, all partial examinations must be taken during the same examination period (refer to § 12 of the examination regulations).

At the examination office it is only necessary to register the main module.

 

For students of Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen (WI):

A Master's degree field of specialization at BISOR consists of 13 CP (9 CP from a module and 4 CP from a seminar). The modules (Business Process Management, Computational Intelligence, Electronic Markets, Multiagent Systems) that are listed in the module handbook comprise of 6 CP (main modules). For students of WI, a main module must be expanded by selecting a feasible compulsory elective subject, that adds 3 CP (two elective subjects, adding 1.5 CP each in the case of Electronic Markets 1 to 4). The combination of a main module and a elective subject forms a module for WI. The list of feasible combinations is given by the tables below.

The grade of the module is determined by the points achieved in each partial examination:

  • There is no final grade for each partial examination.
  • The module (9 CP) must be passed as a whole. In case of failure, the module must be repeated as a whole.
  • In particular, all partial examinations must be taken during the same examination period (refer to § 12 of the examination regulations).

At the examination office it is only necessary to register the name of the main module (e.g., Business Process Management for WI). The elective subject must not to be registered at the examination office (as discussed above, the main module already consists of 9 CP for WI).

In order to support the chair with conducting the examinations, you should tell the supervisor of your main module in which elective subject you are going to participate. Otherwise, on the day of the exam, the starting time might be delayed.

 

For students from all other departments (e.g., Mathematics, Computer Science):

Unfortunately, the chair is not aware of the regulations that apply to you. In your case, it is best if you contact your respective examination office regarding the eligibility of individual exams or modules.
