Comments about Master of Business and Technology - Online - on campus - Perth - WESTERN AUSTRALIA - Western Australia
Bridges the business and technology gap � the successful integration of technology into business. This integration is critical to business success in today's rapidly changing environment. Effective technology usage can underpin every step of the value chain, from concept development and strategic positioning to delivering customer value. Enterprise use of software packages rather than own software development is becoming increasingly pervasive. This relatively new approach to Information Technology (IT) usage requires a greater understanding of the business as in most cases the business changes to accommodate the package rather than vice versa. The IT specialist increasingly needs a good understanding of the business as well as the information technology. Effective use of IT is also becoming more critical to organizational success. The interface between the IT professional and the business professional is becoming less defined as the business professional is required to have a good understanding of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and similarly the ICT professional is expected to be able to understand and address wider business issues. The understanding of either business or technology alone is insufficient. The course will be targeted towards this increasingly important interface between business and technology. This course is suitable for business people who are seeking ICT knowledge/understanding and ICT people seeking business knowledge/understanding.
Available to applicants with a recognised undergraduate degree in another discipline, or successful completion of a Graduate Certificate of Business acceptable to the course coordinator.
