BIS Top Achieving Students

First Place INFS3070 Business Analysis in Practice, S1 2015

The highlight of my BIS studies is likely to be the practical application of concepts through group projects. You have the opportunity to use real life case studies to apply key concepts, and make recommendations for certain industries. Personally, being quite interested in becoming a consultant, I found the projects to be interesting, as well as challenging. 

The ability to actually understand the business-case behind technology and why/how technologies may assist a business in achieving their objectives is a unique skill-set that most graduates do not have. For this reason, BIS provides me with a competitive edge.

If you are thinking about whether BIS is right for you – give INFS1000 a try! It really does give you a snapshot of what the major is all about. If you are passionate about the technological space, but do not wish to do tech-heavy things such as programming – this major is right for you! If you do decide to go ahead – get involved with BISA as well, with a small cohort, you get to know everybody quite well!

First Place INFS3050 Business Intelligence for Managers, S1 2015

The BIS major has given me the opportunity to explore my interests in the booming intersection of Business and IT. I was given the opportunity of experimenting with Data Visualisation and Reporting tools, Tableau and SAS Visual Analytics. I know these are highly valuable skills in industry and the chance to be taught by world-class, leading researchers with deep industry connections and an unwavering desire to share their passion was contagious and made me want to keep coming back to class each week.

I’m looking towards entering Customer Insights and Strategy as a career and my studies in BIS have given me process-thinking, data visualisation and analytics skills that will hopefully make me a valuable contributor to the highly dynamic and creative type of work that it is.

Take advantage of the world-class thinking in the BIS discipline, which has some of the most supportive, energetic and passionate staff there are in the Business School. BIS expands your perspective and gives you the upper edge in whatever career you want to apply yourself in.

First Place in INFS2030 Digital Business Management , S1 2015
First Place in INFS3040 Enterprise Systems and Integrated Business, S1 2015

Growing up in an age where industries are constantly being disrupted by digital innovation, I wanted to understand how technology could improve and transform businesses. Constructing my own digital business (in INFS2030) was something that taught me important skills but also allowed me the freedom to pursue a topic that I was extremely interested in (fintech). I truly feel that this course delivers essential skills in pitching, development, idea validation, and design.

Technology underpins every single industry and its presence will only continue to grow. If you don’t have an understanding of it you will be left behind and if you do you will excel and distinguish yourself from the crowd. By studying BIS you are getting an essential foundation that lets you hit the ground running the minute you enter the workplace.
