First Place in INFS3070 Business Analysis in Practice, S1 2016
I wanted to learn a skill at university, something practical I could take to the workforce, so taking BIS has taught me how to use SAP, how to model processes and in doing so I realised I would like to be a business analyst and work into consulting. Hopefully I can use the skills from BIS to identify issues, model processes, design solutions and implement programs for businesses.
Data and systems are the future and getting insight into how this data is collected, stored and used is relevant to every living person now. The courses teach you how to cut through overwhelming volumes of information and scaled enterprises through simple modelling techniques and processes to follow. I learnt more in BIS than other classes because of the real case studies than give you decent analytical practice.

I would definitely recommend any student to take BIS units, even as an elective, because every BIS subject I have taken has been so engaging and relevant to my career. BIS compliments virtually any major, so really, you lose absolutely nothing.
I initially intended to major in Accounting, so I took BIS for the CPA accreditation, but I ended up enjoying the subjects so much that I switched majors. I’ve continued to stay in this major because every subject I’ve taken in this discipline has been so fun and engaging.
The highlight of my BIS studies was probably being able to join BISA! It’s been a really great place to make friends who are as interested in business technology as much as you are!
First Place in INFS2030 Digital Business Management, S1 2016
I was motivated to study BIS because I really appreciated how it encouraged forward thinking and focused on developing the ability to solve complex business problems within an increasingly technology-driven business world.
The highlight of my BIS studies has been the practical application of theory in individual and group projects. It is truly rewarding to be able to recognise how the key concepts and methodologies can be applied to real-world business scenarios.
I would definitely recommend students to undertake BIS subjects as the ability to bridge the gap between people, business and technology is incredibly relevant as technology trends, more than ever, continue to change and shape the business landscape. Your ability to understand and adapt to these trends will be highly regarded.
