Overview

Business Information Systems Diploma

Information technology, business software, mobile platforms—information systems are reinventing the way we do business. Computer-savvy people with programming and development skills are in demand in the business world. 

Business Information Systems (BIS) is a two-year diploma program offered full-time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Moose Jaw Campus. It includes four academic semesters and a six-month paid co-operative education work term.

The Business Information Systems program starts with a solid foundation in business basics with a focus on information technology functions and learning how to use them to develop meaningful business solutions. 

This includes training in:

  • Software development languages (Visual Studio.NET, Java, COBOL);
  • Computer hardware, networking and operating systems (Windows, Unix and Linux);
  • Data gathering, modelling and database management systems (Oracle, SQL Server 2000);
  • Retrieval techniques of databases and programming languages (SQL, PLSQL, ADO.NET, JDBC); and
  • Target platforms, including Windows application development, networked software development, and web application development (XHTML, JavaScript, ASP, Java).

You’ll use cutting-edge technology in servers, programming and mobile apps. 

You’ll have opportunities to develop or enhance actual production applications and build hands-on skills in systems analysis, design methodologies and project management.
