In a World of Business, Information and Technology is key in making a difference

Advances in computer-based information technology in recent years have influenced how business managers make and implement decisions. These support systems are often developed from scratch and tailored for specific purposes to increase effectiveness within the organisation. 

The growing demand for Information Systems professionals who also possess an aptitude for business organisations means graduates of this program often enjoy very rewarding careers. 

Information Systems focuses on the study of complementary networks of hardware and software that people and organizations use to collect, filter, process, create, and distribute data. 

Essentially, this is computing in an organizational context, typically in businesses. It serves as a bridge between the technical and management communities within an organization.

MyGameDev Talent Development Initiative:
In 2012, the Ministry of Higher Education awarded UOW Malaysia with a PEMANDU Entry Point Project initiative under the Economic Transformation Plan and the National Key Results Area (Education) to spearhead the Game Development industry in Malaysia, focusing on awareness and talent building activities. This Game Development Cluster represents the start of a strategic collaboration between educational institutions and the Game Development industry to create a High-Income, Sustainable Creative Economy in the area of Game Development.

The primary measure of success in a digital game region is a critical mass of talent. Without critical mass, it is difficult to find support, retain talent, and attract international visibility and credibility. In an effort to maintain a constant flow of talents into the Game Development Industry, MyGameDev’s role is to ensure that not only are the relevant institutions generating graduates which are industry ready but to also prepare a ready pool of raw post-secondary student talents to feed into this pipeline.
