Graduate Employment

A business analyst is a person who understands organisations on the one hand and the capabilities and limitations of information technology on the other. Additional roles of the graduate are as an information analyst, who investigates information needs and designs systems to support them; a system architect, who is concerned with integration of business systems; and as an information systems manager who deals with areas such as service provision and outsourcing. These people need to understand the intent and context of systems. They must be able to address issues of work practice and information needs beyond purely ICT based solutions. They must understand people and organisations, including impacts of actions on the business as a whole and interactions between people rather than just interfaces to computer systems.
