Double Degree in Computer Science / Information Systems and Business Administration / Business Administration (Accountancy)

To nurture business-savvy IT professionals as well as technology-minded business leaders for the economy

The Double Degree Programmes in Computer Science /Information Systems and Business Administration/Business Administration (Accountancy) are jointly offered by NUS School of Computing and NUS Business School. It aims to leverage the advantage of NUS being a comprehensive university, allowing students to fully develop their potential through multidisciplinary programmes.

Business Administration and Computer Science/Information Systems are complementary areas of knowledge which are becoming inextricably interwoven. Our various communications with the IT industry have revealed a strong demand among employers for graduates with good computer science or information systems knowledge and in-depth understanding of business domains.

NUS Business School

The Double Degree programme in Computer Science and Business Administration (including Accountancy) meets such a demand through its design that emphasises on developing both the core computing skills and business skills of students. It enables students to apply computational considerations to all aspects of business practice, thereby complementing their business skills and introducing a new analytic dimension to the understanding of organisational behaviour, finance & accounting, marketing, economics, and business law, among others.

NUS Business School

The Double Degree programme in Information Systems and Business Administration (including Accountancy) meets a similar demand. It enables students to practise the management and implementation of information systems, enhanced with complementing business skills and knowledge in areas such as organisational behaviour, finance & accounting, marketing, operations management, economics, and business law, among others.

Both combinations of business and computing/information systems programmes will develop business-savvy IT professionals as well as technology-minded business leaders for the economy.
