I have seen that German and also some other European universities offer a masters degree in Wirtschaftsinformatik(Business Informatics). What is this degree about? For whom is it intended? Is it something like a combination of MBA and Ms. Computer Science? What are career possibilities? Is there a usual requirement for a semester abroad?

P.S. I've read the wikipedia page, but I want to know the personal experiences.

I think you'll find more information on the universities that offer this degree than here. For instance: If you can take a semester abroad depends on the university, some might offer this - others might not.

Websites have general description of the program, however I just don't get the essential idea behind it. That's why I am looking for someone who has such a degree and could share his/her experience.

Some of my colleagues here in Germany have this degree and they are mostly into Business Analysis, Project Management kind of roles.

What about lets say System Architect? Are they suitable for such types of jobs?

And what is the the equivalent degree in US education system? Information Systems seems not to be it..
