The Certificate in Business Information Systems provides a broad understanding of how IT is applied in a business environment. It is a non-award course, meaning you will not gain a qualification by the end. You will, however, be able to study units available in the Bachelor of Information Technology degree – and if you satisfy the units’ assessment requirements you can apply for entry into the Bachelor degree.

The Certificate in Business Information Systems provides an alternative pathway into the Bachelor of Information Technology for domestic, fee-paying students, who will be granted credit for the units (subjects) they’ve successfully completed. Students will learn about:

  • how information systems (IS) drive competitive strategies and organisational change
  • the significance of both technological and organisational issues in the analysis, design, development and deployment of IS solutions.
