At the School of Information Systems, you’ll have the opportunity to study business information systems, business information technology, and logistics and supply chain management. You can choose to focus on one area, or study a combination of areas to supplement your knowledge.

Business Information Systems and Business Information Technology

Businesses rely on information systems to obtain, process and output information. They need IT professionals who can analyse and identify problems and find system solutions.

The study of business information technology focuses on how IT is used to collect, process and output information in organisations, and provides an in-depth knowledge of application development and design, and systems implementation and management.

An information systems (IS) specialist analyses and maps out an organisation’s business processes to work out how to optimise its operations. They design, deliver, test and implement IT systems and provide staff with desktop or network support.

If you want to work on the business side of IT, studying business information systems at CBS will put you on the right path. You’ll learn how business information systems are selected, managed and applied to business problems, and gain an understanding of systems analysis and project management.

Jobs in IS and IT include systems or business analyst roles, which help to identify and solve business needs; IT manager positions responsible for the development and maintenance of ICT systems within an organisation; and project manager roles, involved in ICT projects through from scoping through to development and implementation.
