Course content


Enterprise Systems Management is an innovative MSc degree course designed for those who want to pursue careers as managers and leaders in implementing technology-based information systems solutions and managing technological transformation within organisations.

You will explore systems and activities within an enterprise that bring together processes, people and technology, you will support digital transformation strategies, and help streamline operations to gain competitive advantages, improved performance and reduced operational costs.

Systems management processes can be applied in retail, banking, travel and telecommunications businesses as well as in manufacturing. Enterprise Systems management is also useful for any size of business – from local SMEs to large multinational organisations.

The course modules are directly relevant to industry's current and expected future needs. You will consider the socio-technical aspects of business management including managing strategic IT change and improving business processes. Building good customer relationships is highlighted throughout the course.

The academic content of the course is complemented with practical workshops - you will work with SAP systems, which are based on a virtual industry, to apply your learning. The Master's Project will allow you to apply your skills and knowledge to practical problems and investigate an Enterprise Systems management research topic.
