BIS Top Achieving Students

First Place in INFS6004 Business Transformation Projects, S1 2015

The highlight of my BIS studies was actually a group assignment in a great class called ‘Technology Enabled Business Innovation’. We were asked to identify a major problem within a business and use disruptive technology to remedy it. Needless to say, my team was brilliant, and it was the first time in my life where I was really able to use my problem solving skills in a challenging situation. Experiences like that have been great confidence builders for me, and have taught me to trust in my abilities.

I recently started a digital creative firm with my brother (another Sydney University BIS postgraduate), and because of our experience in BIS, we’re already finding it very easy to analyse the effectiveness of our clients’ IT systems and digital presence, and how best to improve them in order to achieve business goals.

As a postgraduate student studying business, it is essential to stay with the trend in the practical world. The business world is heading towards digital and online more than ever, so I think to understand how information systems work and its value adding to corporates and organisations is crucial.

Since more and more companies are using Enterprise Resources Planning systems to collect, sort, manage and interpret data from different business activities, having studied the basics of BIS will help me better understand business processes and improve my employability when I graduate. I now see the management of a corporate in a different angle. I appreciate the importance of information and data flow within an organisation and understand that control of risks can be ‘programmed’ into the business processes. Getting to understand what an information system is, how it functions, and its value to companies in various industries should be an indispensable part of your business degree.
