In 2014, annual global IT expenditure exceeded 3.5 trillion USD! Gartner’s 1Q15 forecast shows that 2015 global spending for enterprise software will be $337.2 billion, with growth of 6.4% over 2014 (Gartner Market DataBook, 2015Q1 Update). Significant portion of this will be spent on business and management consulting and services—much of which involves redesigning firms’ business operations to take advantage of ever increasing technological innovations. Computer-based information systems continue to be a critical part of the products, services, operations, and management of organizations. Information systems and information technology can be so critical as to disrupt classic business models, threatening traditional revenue streams and even driving industry sectors to extinction. The print newspaper industry, travel agencies, real estate agencies, and video rental stores represent industries that have been forced to change their business models and operations in response to the introduction of new information technologies and systems. The effective and efficient use of modern technologies is an important element in maintaining or achieving competitive advantage for business organizations. The information technology/information systems strategy is an integral part of organizational strategy. Information systems support management processes at all levels – operational, tactical, and strategic management. Information systems are vital to problem identification, analysis, and decision making. BSc (Hons) in MIS is a four year programme specifically targeting to produce IS professionals with the required knowledge and skills at their disposal to, 1. Analyze and improve organizational processes, 2. Exploit opportunities created by technology innovations, 3. Understand and address information requirements, 4. Design and manage enterprise architecture, 5. Identify and evaluate solutions and sourcing alternatives, 6. Secure data and infrastructure, and 7. Understand, manage and control IT risks.
