Career prospects:

The role of ICT in business is increasing, and it is a strategic focus area of organisations across all industries. In addition to providing infrastructures and tools that facilitate traditional business operations, ICT is becoming an integral part of products, services and sales.

Digitisation of operations and diversifying uses of ICT offer excellent career opportunities for ICT business graduates in both ICT companies as well as a range of organisations that utilise the technologies. Graduates in this industry typically have a good employment rate. Another option is self-employment with the help of the StartUp School services. Find out more at
