Course content

Information Systems (IS) as a discipline is a combination of IT systems, business analysis, organisational and management theory, psychology and sociology that have found their home in IS. This is largely because these diverse areas are required now in increasingly complex organisational environments. An organisation’s critical work systems are linked to the Information Systems that supports them. In the context of this course we assume the term ‘information system’ involves computer technology. However, the course places more emphasis on the human and organisational aspects of IS than on the computer systems that may form part of them. This course has been developed to deliver the higher level, essential skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a role managing large-scale information systems. It will encourages you to reflect on the bigger picture of information systems management by taking a wider perspective on the strategic challenges that occur. The course will enable you to develop the skills and expertise required to become an innovative problem solver who can bridge the gap between those focused on IT and those focused on business.
