Typical business information systems will be studied via in real world case studies which will require students to develop effective listening and reading skills. A CASE (Computer Aided Software Engineering) tool will be used for various aspects of systems modelling. Learners will also experience project management software, and use it to put project management theory into practice. Students will be assessed the application of contemporary systems analysis and design methods and techniques to real world problems. This will be done via the assignments and the final examination. Professional ethics will be explored via formative assessment. The course draws on the Business Analysts Body of Knowledge as prescribed by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA).
