Business Information Systems play a pivotal role in the new economy and enterprise setting characterised by strategic procurement, global outsourcing, physically distributed operational environments, and global business alliances. Business Information Systems is a boundary-spanning field of study relating to how information and communication technologies (ICT) can be deployed to improve business processes and enhance the organisation’s value chain networks, which organisations use to acquire, produce, and deliver goods and services all over the world, through efficient, effective and competitive use of ICT.
An understanding of Business Information Systems will help students develop critical skills needed to function effectively in a global information-based and technology-driven business environment. Graduates will understand how organisations can take advantage of computer-based information systems and related emerging technologies to share information in order to improve business efficiency, develop effective decision making, and maintain competitiveness in their industries.
