Student review
I mean once I got a job I feel like one or two units of the 24 I did really helped me out. There is a lot of emphasis on being a business analyst. I feel like a business degree would help you more in this case. There are a few units to do with professional practices which is basically "how to not be an idiot in the work place". When I started there were easily a hundred students in the intro units. I graduated with 12 of my peers. I coasted through and didn't try very hard to do well. CR/DN average. I'd recommend this to others just because if you're somewhat intelligent with a bit of motivation you can get through it and then struggle to find a job in IT afterwards.
