The Institute of Information Systems and Marketing (IISM) has broad knowledge in data science. The IISM was founded in 2003 and combines the Schroff chair for Information Services and Electronic Markets EM (Prof. Dr. Andreas Geyer-Schulz) and the chair for Information & Engineering IM (Prof. Dr. Christof Weinhardt). In 2012, the Institute of Decision Theory and Management Science (Prof. Dr. Martin Klarmann) joined the IISM. After the integration of the Marketing & Sales Research Group M&S (Prof. Dr. Martin Klarmann) the institute was renamed Institute of Information Systems and Marketing. Recently, the two research groups "Information Systems & Service Design" (ISSD) (Prof. Dr. Alexander Maedche) and Services Marketing ServM (Prof. Dr. Ju-Young Kim) joined IISM. Today, five research groups work in education, research, and innovation in the field of Information Systems and Marketing.
