Over the last couple of decades, the IT industry has undergone a transformation as technology has permeated all areas of business. In most organisations IT has changed from a support department installing and troubleshooting systems to a key enabler of business strategy and competitiveness, applying digital solutions to business problems.
The Information and Communication Technology in Business Advanced Post Graduate Associate program program is a hybrid qualification designed to address the business need for multi-skilled individuals possessing the IT, business, and interpersonal skills required for the 21st century digital economy. The program has been structured to provide learners with a wide range of options encompassing IT, management and business.
