What employers like about this subject
Contrary to the popular myth about those who work in IT, solid communications skills are advantageous, especially when explaining complex computing ideas to those without any such background. Those who can act as a bridge between different facets of a business will find many opportunities open up to them. Essentially, you’ll be problem-solving as you analyse technical solutions and apply them to a business’s problems, both highly-desirable skills in the eyes of employers. Additionally, you’ll gain many technical skills such as knowledge of various programming languages. Meanwhile those in information systems manager roles will be charged with managing a team of programmers and analysts; these leadership skills are generally valuable as you progress in your career.
