Specialise in Organisational Technology Management for your Bachelor of Business at Massey
New tools and technology are continuously changing the way in which businesses operate. With the huge amount of data collected, they need to know how to manage it.
The Bachelor of Business (Organisational Technology Management) will make you a sought-after technology and data management expert. You will have the knowledge and skills for problem-solving, persuasion and presentation to help organisations understand new technology and gain the data insights they need.
Our qualification brings together human and organisational aspects of computer-based information systems. This is in contrast to computer science and information technology that stress the underlying technologies. If you enjoy working with people and would like to understand more about the business world, the BBus (OTM) is for you.
Our lecturers are actively researching both nationally and internationally, bringing the most relevant developments in business theory and practice to the classroom. They also have real-world experience in the business world, with in-depth knowledge of big data and how technology is trending into the future.
The Bachelor of Business will give you the leadership, communication and critical thinking skills that will make you a sought-after employee.
You may wish to consider the Master of Management or Master of Analytics and then a PhD upon completion of this qualification.
A Bachelor of Business in Organisational Technology Management is a good fit if you:
- are passionate about new and innovative technology
- would like to combine business management skills with your interest in technology
- want to have a career in a technology-oriented industry.
The Bachelor of Business provides considerable flexibility, enabling you to take control of your own qualification within the regulations.
If you study full-time, in your first year, you’ll take eight 15-credit courses, making a total of 120 credits.
If you wish to study over two semesters, you should aim for 60 credits per semester. You may be able to take some courses at summer school. Make sure you include courses that are prerequisites for the next level of courses you wish to study.
Core business courses
Core courses 115111, 115112, 115113, 115114, 115115 and 115116 must be completed within the first 120 credits, and 115211 and 115212 within the first 240 credits of study towards the degree.
Core courses are compulsory. These are courses which cover topics across the business spectrum. They are designed to give you the leadership, communication and solid business skills that you will need in your career.
‘Capstone’ courses are designed to be taken in your last year of study. This relies on you having completed the correct first and second year courses and ties your learning together.
Completing a minor is optional. Minors increase the breadth of your degree. They give you extra knowledge, attributes and capabilities.
A minor must be in a different subject from your major.
A Bachelor of Business (Organisational Technology Management) with a minor
You may choose a minor from any university undergraduate degree that has recognised minors. If the minor is from another undergraduate degree, the regulations of that qualification will apply.
An organisational technology management minor (for students who are studying a different degree)
If you are not studying a Bachelor of Business (Organisational Technology Management) and wish to complete a minor in organisational technology management, see the BBus regulations for the requirements of this minor.
