Outline

Outline

Businesses rely on information systems to obtain, process and output information. They need employees who can analyse and identify any issues, and propose the best systems solution.

An information systems specialist analyses, develops, tests, implements and supports an organisation’s systems and processes. Their ideas and recommendations can help achieve better outcomes through effective use of technology and information systems.

This major will help you gain employment in the business side of IT. You’ll focus on how information technology is used to collect and process information in organisations, and gain in-depth knowledge of application design, systems implementation and management.

If you wish to become a business information system professional, you should instead study the Business Information Systems Extension major. Accreditation of the extension major is being sought from the Australian Computer Society, which is a member of the Seoul Accord. Once accredited, this major will be internationally recognised.

This major sits within the Bachelor of Commerce degree. To apply for this major, you will apply for the Bachelor of Commerce.
