Business Process Management (BPM) is a set of structured methods and technologies for increasing the operational performance of organisations. The goal of BPM is to create a process-centric, customer-focused organisation that integrates management, people, process and technology for both operational and strategic improvement. Recent studies report that BPM has become a top priority across all industries, and professionals who can combine managerial and IT skills to enhance process performance are in high demand. The required skills cover strategic alignment, governance, process modelling, analysis, innovation, process-aware information systems and change management.

QUT’s outstanding research credibility in BPM has influenced the design of the Master of Business Process Management. It reflects the requirements of the industry’s needs for business process expertise and prepares graduates for an exciting BPM career.
