It was very interesting to take part in BIS classes, as they are very different to the classes in other courses I have been to, in a sense that the classes were conducted in a very interactive manner, where students had full access to the assistance from the teaching team.

As an accounting student, I find BIS greatly complements my understanding of accounting as the BIS concepts are highly relevant in other fields of business, which ultimately enables me to understand businesses in a more holistic manner.

As Business graduates, it is imperative that one keeps up to date with the technology, and having an expertise in BIS will be of major advantage for students, due to the relevance of BIS in every business and industry. For these reasons, I would definitely recommend students to undertake BIS subjects/courses.

Joint First Place INFS3050 Business Intelligence for Managers, S1 2014

My motivation to study BIS stemmed from my thorough enjoyment of undertaking BIS subjects. They encompass practical and analytical elements that I have not witnessed while undertaking other Commerce subjects. We are given amazing opportunities that extend beyond the usual theory in classrooms.

I really enjoy how BIS subjects place great emphasis on group work. We are given an opportunity to meet and work with other BIS students who provide unique and insightful perspectives. It has enabled me to better collaborate and communicate in a team, a skill that I believe, is essential and fundamental to thrive in any workplace environment. Another highlight of my BIS studies is being a part of BISA (Business Information Systems Association). As the current president of BISA, our team works with companies to provide maximum benefits to BIS students. It¿¿¿s incredibly rewarding and fulfilling to help ensure that BIS students receive as many industry-related opportunities as possible.

I highly recommend you to join BISA as they provide fantastic opportunities to BIS students such as their networking events with industry representatives or their fantastic mentor program.

Coming from a purely technical IT background, I wanted to expand my knowledge and learn more about the impact of IT systems in business environments. I felt that BIS is the right place to start and also learn more about various business concepts and challenges.

It is truly amazing when I look back and realise the amount of information I have grasped in just 13 weeks.

I feel that along with my technical knowledge, this experience of learning about business concepts and challenges will definitely give me a competitive edge when applying for jobs.

First Place INFS3070 Business Analysis in Practice, S1 2014

What motivated me to study BIS was the desire to understand how my technical knowledge could be used to solve business problems.

The highlight of my studies in BIS were the inclusion of industry perspectives into the course. Industry perspectives were included in our learning outcomes through guest lecturers and the use of case studies. These perspectives made study highly engaging as it demonstrated how the knowledge could be applied to the "real world".

If you are interested in both technology and business and want a challenging and fulfilling major, you should consider studies in Business Information Systems.
