Information Systems in Business - ACCG822

This unit enables students to gain an understanding of the implications and impacts of the web revolution based on the basic principles of management information systems. The primary objective of this unit is to understand the concept of the digital economy, the impact business pressures play on the organisation and their responses and adaptations to these pressures and the role technology plays both inside and outside the organisation in the context of globalisation. The focus is on the creation of business value by enabling business processes through the use of information and communications technologies (ICTs). This unit is offered in two delivery modes. Students can choose between a face-to-face, on campus offering, over the full semester, or an external offering comprising six modules, each of one week’s duration, with a workshop on campus prior to the start of semester.
