CF78 - Graduate Certificate in Information Systems

About Information Systems

Modern businesses require employees who have knowledge of people, technology and organisations.  Learn about all three and position yourself for a rewarding and stimulating career.  The term Information Systems is used instead of computing to indicate that we are interested in organisational solutions - not just the technology itself.  Studies have shown that employers seek people with business and people skills as well as computing skills.

Study Mode

Online Education, Distance Learning & External study modes available
