Business Information Systems

Business Information Systems (BIS) is an exciting, fast-changing field. In today's world BIS professionals are playing an important role in enabling organisations to meet their strategic goals, driving business innovation, and assisting businesses to comply with increasingly complex legal requirements.

An understanding of BIS is important to the work of all business professionals including executive managers who determine the organisation's strategic direction; information professionals who design and deliver new information services; accounting and financial managers who use information systems for financial management and business reporting; and marketing and sales managers who use information systems to track customer buying patterns and to promote new products.
