INFS2030 extends on learnings from both INFS1000 of creating a digital business, exploring how digital technologies can be used to create and enhance a business that is viable online.

 

"The unit teaches the reimagination of classic business models and conventions, such as Porter’s generic strategies in digital businesses, and ways to facilitate these into competitive advantages."

Assumed Knowledge: INFS1000 or INFO1000 or INFO1003 or INFO1903

Difficulty: Intermediate

Things to Consider Before Enrolling:


The subject is moderately content-heavy, with many models and theories that are relatively new or untouched by other business units. Pay close attention to the different graphs and models used towards the end of the unit, as they are very informative and applicable to the questions you can get in the final exam. Groups should be formed as early as possible as the group project is a significant part of the unit and requires a substantial amount of time to align everyone’s ideas, especially for a task where you need to pitch a new innovative business idea.
