Bond University has combined its Information Technology and Business Faculties to create a new super-faculty. The move is in line with Bond’s cutting edge approach to IT education where students are groomed for executive-level IT careers in the upper echelons of corporate management.
“Bond’s Faculty of Information Technology has led the way by introducing degrees that cater for the emerging push to involve IT professionals at the directorship and Board levels of big business,” said Garry Marchant, Dean of the Bond Business School.
“Information Technology is no longer an isolated discipline; it embraces every aspect of business from finance and accounting through to marketing and administration.
“As such, the combination of Bond’s Business and Information Technology faculties will allow students to take greater advantage of the strong inter-disciplinary synergies that already exist.”
Bond IT is acknowledged by industry, employers and government as one of Australia’s leading professional Information Technology schools and its courses have received top ranking from the Australian Computer Society.
As part of the new super-faculty, the School of Information Technology will be in a stronger position to build on this established reputation, offering a broad range of information and communication technology degrees for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The move also follows many other top-tier Australian and international IT schools that have combined information technology with science, economics, commerce, business, and other related faculties.
There will be no impact on students enrolled in current degree programs, with all classes proceeding as scheduled.
