Overview

This unique course provides you with both high-level technology skills and an understanding of the business world – all in three years.

You will be able to design innovative analysis systems and strategies in the government sector, in established and emerging businesses, in consultancies, and in the not-for-profit sector.

Official labour market predictions say jobs for management and organisational analysts, ICT managers and ICT business and systems analysts are growing in Australia.

The Bachelor of IT and Business is not a qualification designed to educate and graduate IT specialists (i.e. programmers) however, graduates will be well placed to span the gap between the business and the technology. Accreditation by the Australian Computer Society (ACS) is currently being sought.
