Overview

There is an increasing demand for work-ready graduates who possess specialist skills from a postgraduate degree in Information Systems/ ICT that complement their prior undergraduate degree/s. Information Systems courses at a postgraduate level can help graduates from different backgrounds gain a broad understanding of the world of business and technological solutions. This mix of 'business savvy' and 'tech savvy' skills mean IS graduates often become business analysts.

These graduates are seen as being a key component in developing and growing the business and ICT sectors and the knowledge base in Canterbury and New Zealand.

The MBIS qualification sits within the Executive Development Programmes and is part of a suite of Information Systems programmes offered by UC's Department of Accounting and Information Systems. UC ranks in the top 200 universities in the world for Computer Science and Information Systems (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2017). The UC Business School is also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), placing it in the top five percent of business schools worldwide.

Furthermore, UC's Information Systems/ICT students benefit from its location on the 'Silicon Plains' of New Zealand, where there are dozens of large, hi-tech companies employing UC graduates.
