2016 BIS top students

Postgraduate Students

Jiang Zhu

Jiang ZhuFirst Place in INFS6018 Managing Business Intelligence, S1 2016

As a data analytics fan, I took INFS 6018 as Business Intelligence sounds quite interesting to me and it also has a deep connection with data analytics and visualisation.

In BIS studies, especially in INFS 6018, the lecturer takes an interactive teaching approach in delivering the lectures to turn students into critical thinkers and better communicators. Moreover, the lecturer provided many opportunities for us to attend various industry events and get connected. Additionally, the group project is very practical and updated.

Having a holistic view of BIS environment gives me more background information and could potentially help me communicate and understand better in the workplace, which gives an edge over purely data analytics majored graduates.

I-Wen LaiFirst Place in INFS6012 Enterprise Systems Management, S1 2016

Studying Enterprise Systems Management not only provides me with a comprehensive view on business processes, but also an advantage in the job market as the accounting profession is currently evolving.

I will be able to make invaluable contributions by not only providing astute inputs for different functional departments but also giving strategic advice for organisations and, therefore, play a vital role in maximising the benefits of automation.

I would recommend students to study some BIS subjects to obtain a holistic view on the business processes of the entire organisation and to consider how technologies can be applied to help achieve competitive advantages.

James McManameyFirst Place in INFS5002 Digital Business Foundations, S1 2016

BIS is increasingly central to a business strategy, competitive advantage and daily operations. Understanding BIS is a great compliment to my focus on business innovation and strategy.

Learning about human and business strategy implications of BIS helps me assist clients in managing change and developing products. The ability to translate technical detail into business implications is an extremely valuable skill to grow. BIS isn’t critically important to the industry you want to work in you can bet it will be soon enough. Take the time to think about how BIS intersects with other disciplines. BIS is as much about the people involved as it is about the technology. It can be easy to get fixated on the technology and not think about the interrelationships between technology, individuals, companies and society.

Yihui GuFirst Place in INFS5000 Accounting Information Systems, S1 2016

BIS studies teach valuable knowledge on business process mapping, internal control and risk management; and develop invaluable skills in independent research, team collaboration and problem solving.

I would strongly recommend BIS studies, as information technology has become integral to organisations across private and public sectors. BIS studies teach crucial knowledge and develop useful skills to excel in professional settings. One of the highlights is the opportunity to interact and learn from industry professionals on real world applications of BIS.

Congxian Zhao

Congxian ZhaoFirst Place in INFS5000 Accounting Information Systems, S1 2016

Given that advanced technology improves the cooperation between finance and other functions, current accountants need to acquire critical skills to support this cross-functional transformation. As a student majoring in professional accounting, I wish to obtain techniques and knowledge in the analysis and management of information in a business environment.

I think studying BIS courses will help me develop business analysis skills to effectively analyse data and information. It also helps me think and consider from an overall organisation’s perspective and enables me to make suggestions on the organisational strategies.
