Information technology ranks among our industry‘s significant drivers of innovation and is crucial for Germany’s sustainable survival in the global economy. That is why the IT industry is in need of qualified senior executives capable of driving innovation and captaining the transfer of technology.

It is for these reasons that industry, science and the German Federal Government have joined to initiate Software Campus as a combined effort designed to promote the development potential of promising young talent and coach a new generation of senior executives with an excellent background in computer science. Software Campus has therefore taken on the responsibility of strengthening Germany’s position as a center of innovation and industry on a long-term basis.
