Information Systems (IS) as a discipline is a combination of Information Technology (IT) systems, business analysis, organisational and management theory, psychology and sociology that have found their home in information systems. This is largely because these diverse areas are now required in increasingly complex organisational environments. Information systems are designed to collect, process, store, and distribute information.
This course has been designed to equip graduates from computing, computing in business and related disciplines, with the advanced level skills to analyse, model, design, evaluate and manage information systems successfully within an organisation.
In the context of this course we assume the term ‘information systems (IS)’ involves computer technology. However, the course places some emphasis on the human and organisational aspects of information systems rather than on the computer systems that may form part of them. During this course, you’ll have access to:
- Computer packages
- Lab facilities available 24/7
On completion of the course you should possess the necessary skills to be able to manage operational change. This will allow you to compete for management positions that bridge the perceived business/IT gap, such as project management, change management and business systems analysis, design and management.
