Business Information Systems is a dynamic three year programme designed to give students knowledge and skills in business, information management and the communication systems and technologies that are essential for enduring business success.
Information is the lifeblood of organisations and understanding its provision, analysis and use are vital business skills in the 21st century. The deployment of computing, database and telecommunications facilities, or ‘information technology’ (IT), is the key to successful handling of business information from many different sources. Modern IT-based information systems support the whole range of business activities, from strategic and financial planning to word processing, from management control of everyday operations to videoconferencing, and electronic commerce on the Internet. Organisations aim to exploit the use of IT for competitive advantage.
This three year programme covers the deployment and management of computerised information systems and focuses on how business managers make successful and appropriate use of IT in the contemporary business environment. An understanding of information systems is essential for the future business manager or administrator and this course will appeal to anyone interested in a career in business management and /or IT.
Business Information Systems takes an integrated ‘systems thinking’ approach. It is oriented towards the skills used in the business planning, analysis and specification of information systems. It does not require ‘traditional’ computer programming, though extensive use is made of general purpose software, database systems and application development tools.

Three years full-time.
Route through part-time study available (5 years on average).

The students’ learning is facilitated through formal lecture programmes, seminar and tutorial exercises/ discussions and the development of software development skills during computer workshop sessions. There is an emphasis on active learning through seminars and practical classes. Both group and individual activities are used to encourage interaction, peer group learning and support, as well as independent study.

A diverse range of assessment methods is employed throughout the modules studied e.g. Software development projects, presentations, business and technical reports, literature reviews, and end of module examinations. Assignments are a mix of individually and group work based at each academic level.
