Bachelor of Commerce
I'm doing a Bachelor of Commerce degree majoring in Business Information Systems (BIS). I have always had a passion for information technology (IT) and yet I think to get anywhere, even within IT, you need to have a fundamental understanding of business in addition to a sound technical knowledge.
The Business Information Systems major focuses as much on the business side of IT as the technological side. I now have a better understanding of where the information technology fits into the bigger picture.
As a student from Norway, I chose Sydney because it is such a reputable university.
I came to Australia because I wanted to become more independent and in charge of my own life. I also wanted to meet new people and experience new things. In fact, one of the reasons I like it so much at The University of Sydney is all the great people I've met. I've met people from every corner of the world. Oh, and I really love the weather here!
