What will I learn?
Information and communications technology (ICT) has been driving profound changes in business over the last few decades. All businesses, from government to the largest multinational to the smallest start-up, need ICT to ensure their long-term stability and viability. Business analysts with strong ICT skills are at the forefront of change and guide businesses toward their goals. This combined degree merges the study of ICT with any of the emerging or traditional areas of business. The degree provides an opportunity to gain qualifications that will provide more breadth and offer wider opportunities for employment. The Bachelor of Business (BBus) component ensures that students learn the fundamental principles underlying the dynamic professional world of business.
The Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT) component aims to give students the opportunity to explore a broad range of aspects of ICT, and to graduate with knowledge and skills in a variety of key areas of ICT for a lifelong career. It offers units across the complete spectrum of ICT, ranging from non-technical areas such as the nature of information and organisational needs for ICT, through the hardware, software, network and creative technologies which are used to satisfy these needs, to the communication, design, development and management skills needed to create, implement and integrate ICT components. It produces ICT professionals who are confident and articulate team players, who are attuned to the needs, methods and attitudes of business and society. It also aims to provide ICT students with the skills and knowledge to take on appropriate professional positions in industry upon graduation and grow into leadership positions, achieve entrepreneurial ambition, or pursue research and graduate studies in ICT.
Graduates of the combined BBus-BICT degree should expect to have the same career outcomes as identified for the BBus and BICT. Graduates of the combined degree would be particularly valuable to government and large business organisations. Graduates of the combined degree would be particularly qualified for a business analyst career.
The combined degree consists of 16 units towards each component of the degree:
A compulsory BICT major of 8 units: 4 introductory, 2 intermediate and 2 advanced
A second BICT major of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate and 4 advanced
A Business major of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate and 4 advanced
A linked minor in the Business component of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate
Degree electives: 3 compulsory units in the Bachelor of Business component, the degree electives are all at introductory level (with the exception of students who are completing an Accounting major who will enrol in BOTH BFA104 and BFA208, one of which replaces a breadth unit). Note: The degree electives in the Bachelor of Business are required to be taken at introductory level as they form pre-requisites for later units and would normally be taken in the first 2 years of study, if studying full-time.
