Business Technology

(BIZ30300)

Business Technology refers to the creative use of information and technology in decision making, in managing business processes and networks, and in developing new products and services. Minor studies in Business Technology offer an interdisciplinary education that allows the student to focus on economic analysis and quantitative modelling, management information systems, or logistics and service management. While the minor gives an understanding of different business functions and their interdependence relevant to managers, it also provides methods and skills for economic analysis required in many other fields of undergraduate and graduate studies. Topics covered by the minor studies in Business Technology include:

  • decision analysis and negotiation processes,
  • development of information systems and associated business processes and services,
  • logistics and supply chain management: sourcing, production and distribution of goods and services,
  • management of technological innovation, and
  • mathematical methods and statistical analysis
