You can undertake industry project work and receive practical, industry learning experience. OurInformation Systems Professional Practice Program allows you to test your skills with a company in the IT industry. This hands-on experience has been developed with the Australian Computer Society Foundation (ACSF) in response to industry demand for job-ready graduates.

Business Information Systems is offered as part of the Bachelor of Commerce. You can enhance your studies with a secondary major or choose from a range of elective units to support your career goals.
