BSc in Business Information Technology
Business Information Technology deals with all aspects of business, management and information technology (IT) combining business science, management science and ICT. The business science focuses on issues concerning design and development of business system procedures and processes to be productive and efficient. The management science deals with setting of vision and goals, planning, implementation, deployment of resources, controlling and monitoring, coordination and evaluation of operations. The ICT component involves system analysis and design, software engineering, and systems administration. Through this programme, the University intends to contribute to the solid training of professionals with knowledge and skills on the management of IT-supported business systems in any kind of organisation.
Many organisations in Malawi, both public and private, are in the process of introducing information and communication technologies (ICT) with the aim of enhancing or improving their operations. In terms of human capital, there is no reliable link between business and ICT professionals. In this ‘technological world’ there is a need to have some individuals at all management levels who are conversant with both business and ICT. Through this programme, the University intends to contribute to the solid training of professionals with knowledge and skills on the management of IT-supported business systems in any kind of organisation.
Graduates of Business Information Technology can have careers in any business that utilises technology in its processes because the programme produces experts in business technology utilisation. As such, graduates can have careers in banking, all industries, software development or indeed establish their own business solutions and applications and become consultants or business owners.
