Do you want to build your skills in project management, and focus on improving quality, workflow management, processes and systems?

The Master of Business Information and Logistics Management (MBILM) at the UWA Business School is designed for computer science graduates wanting to expand their business knowledge, as well as business graduates wishing to develop their technical skills.

The course will develop and expand your skills to manage IT infrastructure projects, determine enterprise systems requirements, analyse organisational data for business intelligence, lead information systems strategies, manage supply chains, and apply emerging technologies across the enterprise.

A major focus of the MBILM is developing your ability to work with IT teams to improve operations.

Career opportunities

Graduate profile

"Including a Business Information Management specialisation in my postgraduate studies at the UWA Business School allowed me to transform my career from an IT Engineer to a well-rounded Performance Improvement consultant.

The course is ideal for both tech-savvy and business-savvy students. The real-life case studies and classroom brainstorming emphasise how Information Management cannot be studied in isolation without due consideration to both the technical and the business aspects. The excellent quality of the course content, classroom diversity, and access to renowned, highly qualified (in academia and in industry) professors mean that I would highly recommend studying Business Information Management at UWA."

Ganesh Chaudhari completed his master's degree in 2012. He is now employed as a Senior Consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers Australia.
