The Information Technology case study (pdf 10.75MB) describes the first year of a completely new undergraduate program within the QUT Faculty of Information Technology (now the QUT Faculty of Science and Technology) – the Bachelor of Corporate Systems Management (BCSM); an “IT degree for business thinkers”. The case study’s author, Associate Professor Karen Nelson, led the course design and the development of the units and was the Course Coordinator in 2007, the first year the Program was offered.

The BCSM was initiated in specific response to a number recent trends impacting on the ICT sector, while from a curriculum perspective the overall aim of the course is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and experience that will allow them to mediate between the business areas of organisations requiring information and technology systems, services and support and the ICT departments or organisations that create, provide and maintain these facilities.
