You will learn to develop business solutions in areas such as customer relationships, management, marketing or accounting and finance using industry based enterprise resource planning tools (e.g. SAP) and business intelligence tools (e.g. SAS). You will also develop an understanding of the analysis, design and application of business information systems and gain knowledge and skills in data warehousing, entrepreneurship, IT, information systems management and business intelligence.
