Course Description

The Master of Information Systems has been developed in response to the rapid growth in the use of information systems and eBusiness applications by businesses and governments internationally.

The mass adoption of social media, the advances of new technologies, and the accumulation of large amounts of data has made information central to many aspects of work and life.

Digital information has revolutionised the way we do business. Its capture, strategic use and associated technology in the business environment, is the discipline of information systems.

The course provides specialist skills in business-oriented principles and practices of information systems and eBusiness. It focuses on the strategic use of information in a business and policy context, supported by a sound technical understanding and capability in specific areas of information systems, particularly information security, supply chain management, and project management.

The course will give you an understanding of the principles and practices of stakeholder analysis, identification of business needs, problems and opportunities, analysis, negotiation and specification of requirements for any solution that may involve technology-inspired change.

You’ll learn quantitative reasoning skills so that you can review business performance to find problems, areas of opportunities, and trends in data using business analytics. You’ll learn data-driven, evidence-based approaches to business decision making and business performance analysis, and you’ll get an understanding of business metrics.

Your project management skills will be developed to ensure that you are able to implement best practice relationship building, communication and resourcing to support your project aims.
