  Home / NUS Bulletin AY2020/21 / School of Computing / Undergraduate Education / Multidisciplinary/Special Programmes / Double Degree Programme in Computer Science/ Information Systems and Business Administration/Business Administration (Accountancy) (Honours/non-Honours)

Overview of Programme

[Bachelor of Computing (Computer Science/Information Systems) (Honours) and Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours/non-Honours); and Bachelor of Computing (Computer Science/Information Systems) (Honours) and Bachelor of Business Administration (Accountancy) (Honours/non-Honours)]

The programme is jointly offered by the NUS School of Computing and NUS Business School. It aims to leverage on the advantage of NUS being a comprehensive university, which enables students to fully develop their potential by pursuing 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 both computer science/information systems knowledge and in-depth understanding of business domains.

The Double Degree programme in Computer Science and Business Administration (including Accountancy) meets such a demand through its emphasis on developing both the core computing skills and business skills of students. It will enable 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 and accounting, marketing, economics, and business law, among others.

The Double Degree programme in Information Systems and Business Administration (including Accountancy) meets a similar demand. It will enable 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 marketplace. The programme is designed so that students may complete it within a reasonable time-frame of five years.

The options offered to students are:

BBA (Hons)/BComp (CS) (Hons)
BBA (Hons)/BComp (IS) (Hons)
BBA (Acc Hons)/BComp (CS) (Hons)
BBA (Acc Hons)/BComp (IS) (Hons)
BComp (CS) (Hons)/BBA
BComp (IS) (Hons)/BBA
BComp (CS) (Hons)/BBA (Acc)
BComp (IS) (Hons)/BBA (Acc)
Programmes (a) to (d) are double-honours degree programmes, while (e) to (h) are single-honours degree programmes available only to students whose home faculty is the School of Computing.

Admission Requirements

Students will be admitted to the DDP only if they meet the requirements of both the NUS School of Computing (SOC) and NUS Business School (BIZ).

Students may be admitted to the DDP in one of the following ways:

Direct application through the University’s admissions exercise with relevant GCE ‘A’ Level or equivalent qualifications (not applicable for Accountancy programme*).
Applicants must satisfy one of the following two criteria:

GCE ‘A’ Level applicants: Pass in either GCE ‘A’ Level or H2 Mathematics
Polytechnic applicants: Accredited diploma or Grade ‘A2′ in GCE ‘O’ Level Elementary Mathematics or Grade ‘B4′ in GCE ‘O’ Level Additional Mathematics
Application at the end of the first year of study in BComp (Hons) in CS or IS, or BBA/BBA (Acc)* if CAP criteria is met. Interested students are strongly encouraged to complete at least one module from the second degree in Business/Computing before considering to apply for the double-degree programme.
*There is no direct admission for double degree programmes with Business Administration (Accountancy). Non-business students must obtain at least B+ for ACC1701X Accounting for Decision Makers and preferably also ACC2706 Managerial Accounting, in order to be considered for late-entry admission after their first year of study.
