Information and communications technology (ICT) has been driving profound changes in business over the last few decades. All businesses, from government to the largest multinational to the smallest start-up, need ICT to ensure their long-term stability and viability. Business analysts with strong ICT skills are at the forefront of change and guide businesses toward their goals.

This combined degree merges the study of ICT with any of the emerging and traditional areas of business. The degree provides an opportunity to gain qualifications that will provide more breadth and offer wider opportunities for employment.

The Bachelor of Business (BBus) component equips graduates with well-developed business knowledge and a mix of skills and abilities that are highly sought after by employers. Embedded in the curriculum are principles of entrepreneurship, innovation, ethics and sustainability, which means that when you graduate you'll be able to make an immediate contribution to work and society.

The Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology (BICT) component aims to give students the opportunity to explore a broad range of aspects of ICT, and to graduate with knowledge and skills in a variety of key areas of ICT for a lifelong career. It offers units across the complete spectrum of ICT, ranging from non-technical areas such as the nature of information and organisational needs for ICT, through the hardware, software, network and creative technologies which are used to satisfy these needs, to the communication, design, development and management skills needed to create, implement and integrate ICT components. It produces ICT professionals who are confident and articulate team players, who are attuned to the needs, methods and attitudes of business and society. It also aims to provide ICT students with the skills and knowledge to take on appropriate professional positions in industry upon graduation and grow into leadership positions, achieve entrepreneurial ambition, or pursue research and graduate studies in ICT.

Career outcomes

Graduates of the combined BBus-BICT degree should expect to have the same career outcomes as identified for the BBus and BICT. Graduates of the combined degree would be particularly valuable to government and large business organisations. Graduates of the combined degree would be particularly qualified for a business analyst career.

Professional Recognition

The BICT component of the combined degree is accredited with the Australian Computer Society (ACS).

If Business students wish to be eligible for membership of a professional body, you will need to select units endorsed by that body. The Bachelor of Business component offers units to enable you to apply to join the following professional bodies:

Entry requirements

We encourage you to apply for the courses you most want to study. If you’re not eligible to enter your chosen course right now, the UTAS admissions team will work with you to find the best pathway option.

Enquire online for advice on the application process and the available pathways to study at UTAS.

DOMESTIC APPLICANTS

Domestic applicants from all educational backgrounds must meet the University’s General Entry Requirements.

This course does not use ATAR as part of the assessment process.

If you have not completed senior secondary or equivalent studies in Mathematics, you must complete BEA109 Introduction to Quantitative Methods (or an alternative foundation or preparatory unit option) before enrolling in BEA140 Quantitative Methods.

Similarly, if you have not completed senior secondary or equivalent studies in Computer Science, you must complete either KIT001 Programming Preparation or KIT101 Programming Fundamentals before commencing KIT107 Programming.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION

If your ability to access or participate in education has been affected by circumstances beyond your control, you can apply for special consideration as part of your application. We will consider a range of factors for special consideration, including economic hardship, a serious medical condition or disability.

We can only approve applications for special consideration where we are confident that you have the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in your studies. If your application is not approved, the UTAS admissions team will work with you to find the best alternative pathway to your chosen course. Special consideration is not available for international applicants.

INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS

Admissions information for international applicants, including English language requirements, is available from the International Future Students site. You can also enquire online to check your eligibility.

If you have not completed senior secondary or equivalent studies in Mathematics, you must complete BEA109 Introduction to Quantitative Methods before enrolling in BEA140 Quantitative Methods.

If you have completed an AQF-recognised Diploma or Advanced Diploma in a business related discipline from an Australian TAFE or other RTO, you may be eligible for advanced standing into the degree. Advanced standing for study already undertaken within another degree at UTAS, or at an Australian or overseas tertiary institution, may also be granted.

Depending on the course of study and the majors chosen, you may not be able to use all of the advanced standing for which you are eligible, for example, if advanced standing has been given for unspecified electives.

Refer to the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics Credit for Prior Study.

If you have completed a Diploma (AQF level 5) or an Advanced Diploma (AQF level 6) in an ICT-related discipline you may be granted advanced standing towards the BICT component of the combined degree. If you wish to be considered for advanced standing you should contact the SET Faculty Office.

In the case of international students, credit for previous tertiary study will be determined on application and, if granted, included with your offer letter.
