Students following the MCI Pathway of the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programme, specialised in Information Management, will learn about the area of international business and management that is vital to the successful operation of companies and organisations around the world – the organisation and management of company and government information. Information Managers are the key to success in many companies.
The world of company and organisation management is becoming increasingly reliant on the optimal and structured use of information technology, and the management of information. Business administrators need to understand and use technology that gathers and provides information within a local, national and global environment, and industry requires managers who are able to distil and recognise patterns in that information, and who can apply those analyses to achieve business objectives.
If the world of technology, information, internet, and cutting-edge IT solutions appeals to you, and you want to excel by using your skills of management, leadership and decision making, then the programme Business Administration in Information Technology is your field!
The programme looks at the management of information, the impact of databases and information retrieval on companies and businesses, and also offers modules such as Open Source Software Concepts, Web Design and Benchmarking, and CRM & CMS Systems.
The programme also deals with the company’s management of software and the implementation of networks in SMEs.
In the modern company, the CIO has now generally become the second most important manager, because of the huge fundamental impact that Information Technology has made on business practices, processes and working environments.
Companies can no longer operate successfully without a secure and well-designed Information Management Policy. Business Administrators must be in firm control of these key areas of their company, and of each department, which includes all personnel working in the team.
The career prospects for an Information Management specialist remain excellent in the ever changing world economy, and students have joined corporations such as Sun Microsystems and Microsoft. Many graduates have also found management and leadership positions in SMEs as information officers.
