This course aims to combine the best of three fields in one by focusing on Information Technology, Information Systems as well as Enterprise process management. The integration of systems and technology in business enterprises has never been more important than it has become now with the political climate we live in. We rely on not only the accuracy and efficacy of these important components, but also the ability of a workforce to manage them efficiently within an enterprise management framework. In the case of management information systems, the infrastructure of such systems has become of paramount importance. The rise of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence has illustrated the importance of not only collecting data, within an organisation, but also more importantly how that data is utilised through technology.
The management and application of modern and evolving technology to meet an organisation’s strategic goals is a skill that employers look for in technical staff.
