Why choose this course?

Business is highly dependent on information technology infrastructure, so having the expertise in both makes you more attractive to employers looking for multidisciplined staff. Businesses look for staff who can communicate well from both the business and information technology disciplines, so having the skills and knowledge across both gives you a competitive edge over other graduates.

You will have the opportunity to complement your information technology studies with a business major in accountancy, advertising, economics, finance, financial planning, human resource management, international business, management, marketing or public relations.
