  • 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. In response to the needs of the industry, this course is offered with a management studies option. This innovative new combined course will enable you to develop key business and management skills and is ideal for students with a background in IT/computing who wish to specialise in the area of information systems while also developing the broad skill set and knowledge needed to fast-track their career in leading and managing successful teams and projects.

    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.

    Following the ‘with management studies’ route, you will learn the fundamentals of marketing, finance and/or managing people and organisations, which will set your technical knowledge in a management context.
