About

The Information Systems (IS) pathway of the Business (Information Systems) (Hons) at Dublin Business School is designed to be specifically relevant to the modern business environment in which the role of information systems has become increasingly important.

Overview

Business professionals are now expected to be proficient in relevant technological concepts and applications, skills that had been viewed as being outside of the domain of the traditional business degree. Information systems must be designed, implemented and maintained using an array of methodologies, tools and technologies. This IS pathway aims to provide students with the skills, knowledge and competences in the use of systems and related-technologies to control and manage organisational data and information.  

Aims & Objectives

The  Business (Information Systems) (Hons) at Dublin Business School aims to create a well-rounded business graduate whose insights will guide and inform strategic business decisions designed to increase productivity, profitability and an organisation's value and market share.

The specific programme objectives are to:

  • Provide learners with a strong base of contemporary business knowledge through theory, concepts and methods constituting an in-depth academic grounding in the core disciplines and skills, and related areas, required for a career in general business.
  • Imbue learners with appropriate expertise in the major aspects of the essential business disciplines and an awareness of the means by which the frontiers of the disciplines can be expanded and new knowledge appraised.
  • Develop in learners a methodical and rational approach to business problem solving and decision making, with the capability to apply acquired knowledge and skills to practical business situations.
  • Develop learner capacity to organise information, argue, negotiate and defend conclusions and to present them in a clear and coherent fashion.
  • Encourage learners to deal with knowledge in a critical and analytical way, with the capacity and confidence to evaluate ideas and opinions underpinned by qualitative and quantitative research findings.
  • Provide learners with the opportunity to specialise in a sub-field of business learning and to increase their knowledge and skills in the specialised area of Information Systems.
