This track produces business analysts and information systems analysts who work in small to medium enterprises, large companies, financial organisations, government agencies and consultancy firms. Units are designed to provide management and technical expertise in the design, development, and implementation of enterprise systems, including information systems, financial systems, integrated business systems, web-based systems and systems that support e-Commerce, e-Government and e-Business.

The goal of the enterprise systems professional track is to prepare students to perform as business or information systems analysts in small to medium enterprises as well as large organisations.

In addition to entry-level system analyst/programmer knowledge and skills, and the desirable generic graduate attributes identified by the University, graduates should be able to:

  • design an appropriate solution for a business including traditional information systems to e-Business solutions
  • plan the development and implementation process of an enterprise system for an organisation
  • use accepted e-Business models for the development of solutions for an organisation
  • design and implement enterprise systems.

Graduates of the track will also have a strong theoretical knowledge of systems development so that they can adapt quickly to changes in technology and methodology.
