The Graduate Certificate of Business Information Systems covers the use and management of information systems – the foundations required by analysts in this field. It may be a standalone post-graduate qualification or your first step towards a Master Degree.

The units are:

  • Professional Issues in IT
  • Business Information Systems
  • Database Analysis and Design
  • Requirements, Analysis and Modelling

The Graduate Certificate is delivered with support from Swinburne’s industry partners, who bring practising professionals and real issues into your academic learning and provide opportunities to apply your new knowledge and skills practically.
