Purpose of the Program

The nature of the IT market itself reflects continuous change elicited by networks, the internet, outsourcing, complex applications software and the globalisation of organisations. Jobs for graduates are available across all spheres of business and industry and the roles less well defined for IT specialists.

The Information Technology market has grown to a point where virtually any organization is a potential employer of IT graduates. These might include companies right across the sectors of health, retail, banking, farming, teaching, transport, manufacturing, publishing, telecommunications, education, libraries and in fact most other industries. 

The RMIT University B Bus (BIS) is designed to enable you, once you have graduated, to create business information systems (IS) solutions that draw on the body of knowledge in:

  • Business
  • Information Systems
  • Interpersonal Skills

You will be expected as a graduate to effectively perform within the global business IS context to implement IT solutions, grounded in current IT infrastructure, technology development, organisational change and ethical codes of practice.
