  • Objectives
    Information systems are a key element in determining the success or failure of an organisation – they can improve competitiveness, transform businesses, restructure organisations and streamline business processes. However, there continues to be a critical shortage of people who can operate at the interface of business and IT. This course seeks to address this shortage by offering you the chance to study a spectrum of business and technical subjects. The course is designed to allow you to tailor your learning to suit your individual career development, industry background and requirements of your business organisation.
  • Academic Title
    Information Systems PgDip/MSc
  • Course description
    What will you study?
    You will study the design and management of information systems to enable you to recognise and accommodate the increased rate of change and instability in the business and information environment that are created by social, economic, political and technical changes.

    You will gain an understanding of how information is used within an organisation, who uses it, the nature of the information, how it relates to decision making and how it contributes to organisational goals and objectives. Case studies and team working are emphasised throughout the course, and modules are regularly updated to ensure quality and relevance to industry. A Research Methods module prepares you for work on your project/dissertation.
