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 or 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 ensures that students learn the fundamental principles underlying the dynamic professional world of business.

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 degree has been developed in consultation with the Australian Computer Society (ACS). As this is a new degree, full accreditation can only be received after there have been some graduates. Professional level accreditation of the degree will be sought. It is anticipated that as a graduate of the BBus-BICT, you will be eligible for membership of the 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:

  • CPA Australia
  • Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia
  • Australian Human Resources Institute
  • Australian Institute of Management
  • Australian Marketing Institute
  • Chartered Institute of Company Secretaries in Australia
  • Australian Institute of Banking and Finance
  • National Institute of Accountants

Membership details may be obtained from the appropriate professional body.

Course structure

The combined degree consists of 16 units towards each component of the degree:

  • A compulsory BICT major of 8 units: 4 introductory, 2 intermediate and 2 advanced
  • A second BICT major of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate and 4 advanced
  • A Business major of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate and 4 advanced
  • A linked minor in the Business component of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate
  • Degree electives: 3 compulsory units in the Bachelor of Business component, the degree electives are all at introductory level (with the exception of students who are completing an Accounting major who will enrol in BOTH BFA104 and BFA208, one of which replaces a breadth unit). Note: The degree electives in the Bachelor of Business are required to be taken at introductory level as they form pre-requisites for later units and would normally be taken in the first 2 years of study, if studying full-time.
  • Two breadth units chosen from this list: http://www.utas.edu.au/students/breadth-units

Bachelor of Business

In the Bachelor of Business component, you choose a major, a linked minor, 3 degree electives and a breadth unit.

These will meet the requirements for the 1 of the introductory units in the major, the 2 introductory units for the minor and the 3 degree electives.

Entry requirements

Domestic students must meet the University's General Entry Requirements.

International students must meet the Admission Requirements for International Students and the University's English Language requirements.

International students must provide an IELTS score with an overall Band of 6 and no band less than 5.5; or a TOEFL score of 550 with a Test of Written English score of at least 4.5. The test must not be more than 24 months old.

Bachelor of Business prerequisites

While no subject prerequisites apply for the degree, students who have not successfully completed Mathematics Applied TQA 3 (MTA315109) or an equivalent pre-tertiary or higher level mathematics subject are required to complete either UPP075 Bridging Maths, BEA109 Introduction to Quantitative Methods, XAB090 Transition Maths or KMA003 Mathematics Foundation Unit before enrolling in BEA140 Quantitative Methods, one of the introductory level compulsory core BBus units.

International students who have not completed Mathematics Applied TQA 3 (MTA315109) or an equivalent pre-tertiary or higher level mathematics subject and who are therefore required to undertake a mathematics bridging program may only take BEA109 Introduction to Quantitative Methods.

Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology prerequisites

Whilst no prerequisites apply for the degree the degree, students who have not successfully completed Mathematics Applied TQA 3 (MTA315109) or an equivalent pre-tertiary or higher level mathematics subject are required to complete a bridging unit as listed above. Similarly, students who have not successfully completed TCE Computer Science (ITC315108 or ITC315113) or an approved equivalent unit must complete either KIT001 Programming Preparation or KIT101 Programming Fundamentals before commencing KIT107 Programming.

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.

Further information on the credit policy for the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics is available at www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/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.
