BB-BISAIN Double degree Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

Unique to Swinburne, the combined Bachelor of Business Information Systems/Bachelor of Applied Innovation is a double degree with a difference.

Graduate with an edge in the employability stakes, as your Bachelor of Applied Innovation equips you with the skills, knowledge and experience to develop transformative solutions to the complex challenges faced by the constantly evolving Information Systems (IS) sector.

Master the technical and analytical skills needed to assess, evaluate and communicate the role of IS in organisations undergoing digital transformation. Unlike standard degrees, you’ll work with students from other disciplines across the university, focusing on how innovation can truly change your sector and society at large.

Become adept at interdisciplinary collaboration and creative and complex problem-solving, while developing your adaptability, curiosity and initiative, in real-world contexts. Leverage analytical and strategic thinking, human understanding and respect for future generations, with the technological know-how to build a better future driven by innovation. Learn to prototype through design sprints and challenges and be ready to implement change, as you conceive, develop and deliver transformative projects designed to hone your leadership potential and create fulfilling employment opportunities.

As a business information systems specialist with applied innovation credentials, you’ll be in demand for specific business, IS/IT and innovation career pathways. You’ll be qualified for business analysis, project management or other fields where IS/IT skills are sought. Or you can explore opportunities such as innovation consultant, innovation or transformation lead, human-centred researcher, innovation strategist or innovation manager. You’ll also have the option to continue on to postgraduate studies; which could be Honours, Graduate Certificate or Masters in IS/IT and/or business.

Please note:

From 2023 this course will be re-tiled to - Bachelor of Business Analytics and Analysis/Bachelor of Applied Innovation
