Information Systems is a fast-expanding industry and the point where business studies and information technology meet. Information systems are a major part of many organisations and impact business operations on a day-to-day basis through mobile phones, EFTPOS, news, and the internet. As a result there has been an increasing demand for 'tech-savvy' people to create and run these systems.
UC's Master of Business Information Systems (MBIS) aims to address high-level skills shortages in the rapidly growing ICT industry, and to meet the growing demand for work-ready graduates in Aotearoa New Zealand and abroad. The MBIS equips graduates, including those from a non-Information Systems or Commerce background, with specialist knowledge and skills applicable to managing the use of technology and technology-driven innovations in business
Students must have a bachelor's degree with at least a B Grade Point Average in 300-level courses, or equivalent, and been approved by the Dean of Business.
If English is your additional language, you are also required to meet UC's English language requirements.
The MBIS can be studied full-time within 15 months, or part-time over a maximum of 4 years. Students can begin their studies in either February or August.
The Master’s consists of 180 points, which is made up of nine courses and a choice between an applied project, research project, or internship.
The Research Project will provide the opportunity for students to apply their knowledge to practice within a professional business environment, engaging in a deeper level of learning through application of their skills in a real-world setting, and applied practice in project management.
