Diploma in Business Information systems

Managers cannot ignore information systems because they play such a critical role in contemporary business organizations. Today’s systems directly affect how managers decide, plan and manage their employees, and increasingly shape what products are to be produced, where, when, and how. Therefore, the responsibility of information systems cannot be delegated to information technology gurus only, a manager must own the decision taken at the end of the day.

Information is now recognized as a critical business asset and the effective management of information is one of the most important challenges facing modern organizations. Information is a powerful lever in achieving competitive advantage. The use of systems and technology to control and manage organizational data and information has developed into a vital business discipline. As a result, business people are now expected to be proficient in relevant technological concepts and applications, skills that had been viewed as being outside of the domain of the traditional manager.
