- About Deakin
Digital information has revolutionised the way we do business. Its capture, strategic use and associated technology in the business environment, is the discipline of information systems. Having an understanding of the relationship between IT and business means IS professionals are highly sought after.
Deakin's Bachelor of Information Systems (BIS) produces job-ready IS professionals. The course provides a broad understanding of IS, work-integrated learning, and an industry on campus program, to ensure a great start to your career. Why not upsize your career options, by combining IS with a degree in Arts, Commerce, Health Sciences, Law, Science, IT or languages.
At postgraduate level, the Master of Information Systems is available if you're wanting to take the next step in your IS career, or for those considering a career change.
You can also undertake an information systems management specialisation in the Deakin MBA.
Deakin's information systems courses have been developed in collaboration with major employer groups, with a strong focus on industry needs, relevant theoretical and practical knowledge, and skills that enhance employability.
