The mass adoption of social media, the advances of new technologies, and the accumulation of large amounts of data has made information central to many aspects of work and life. The Master of Information Systems has been developed in response to this new emerging information-focused economy, where organisations are keen to hire specialists who understand the strategic use of information in the business context. In addition to learning about broad business-oriented principles and practices of information systems, the course also allows students to specialise in Business Analytics, Social Media and Mobile Strategies, or Supply Chain Management.
The course is aimed at graduates from all disciplines seeking to build a career as an information systems professional, particularly in the IT services and consulting industry, in IT solutions, and IT support. The course incorporates extremely flexible methods of delivery combining the use of high quality Cloud (online) study and face-to face campus mode learning and has a high level of industry engagement.
Deakin offers many courses which can be studied by distance education overseas.
However, international students living in Australia must, in each compulsory trimester (that is, Trimesters 1 and 2), enrol in at least one unit that is offered as a Campus located unit and can, in addition enrol in units offered via Cloud (online). International students are not permitted to do more than 25% of their total course via Cloud (online) learning. Best practice is to enrol in mostly Campus located units in each compulsory trimester.
In a non-compulsory trimester (Trimester 3), international students may study Cloud (online) units only.
This course teaches students the skills required to manage the impact of technologies in organisations, understand the role of technology in managing knowledge and information, and recognise the role of modern information systems in society and business.
Graduates can move into careers as data analysts, business analysts, systems analysts, e-Business specialists, security analysts, and information systems project leaders.
The program consists of 16 credit points, including 8 credit points of core units; an Information Systems specialisation of 4 credit points and 4 elective units.
