Information Systems and Business Processes - ACCG250

This unit introduces students to the impact that information systems have on business processes, and provides the foundation for further studies in accounting and other business information systems. Topics covered include business processes, systems development, internal controls, ethics and cybersecurity, and the role of accounting and accounting information systems. The material is presented through a business lens, exploring the benefits that information systems bring to the organisation. This makes the unit more than just 'how to use computers'. Rather, emphasis is placed on appreciating the critical role that information systems play in supporting the business function, and the need for a critical nexus between the business and the information systems functions. The unit develops graduate capabilities associated with teamwork and critical thinking, through the use of a range of case-based materials.
