Business is highly dependent on information technology infrastructure, so having the expertise in both makes you more attractive to employers looking for multidisciplined staff. Businesses look for staff who can communicate well from both the business and information technology disciplines, so having the skills and knowledge across both gives you a competitive edge over other graduates.
You will have the opportunity to complement your information technology studies with a business major in accountancy, advertising, economics, finance, human resource management, international business, management, marketing or public relations.
This double degree will give you the particular skills to acquire a role requiring knowledge in both business and information technology. These include business analyst, systems manager, product manager for an information technology product, team leader for multidisciplinary staff, pre-sales consulting, after-sales support, technical manager or consultant. Future career prospects include chief financial officer, chief information officer, and chief technical officer.
This course is accredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS). ACS accreditation is internationally recognised by the Seoul Accord. Your business degree may also be recognised by the relevant professional body for your chosen business major.
