This article contains the analytical results of qualitative and descriptive research regarding the definition of specialisation courses in the areas of "Informatics" and "Management" for extra-occupational study offers within the discipline of Business Informatics. The subjects were IT specialists with either foundation or advanced Chamber of Commerce (IHK) IT training, who participated as students in the credit transfer courses developed in the "Open IT" research project, or who were interested in participating. The investigative results reveal clearly in certain parts just what the preferences of working IT students are in terms of the scientific specialisation courses on offer, and how student target groups can be actively and effectively integrated into the design process of degree programme curricula.
