Course content

This MBA is for aspiring managers who understand and embrace the role of technology within a business and who are ready to make the leap into management within an IT environment. The programme will provide you with a broader understanding of business through considering issues such as human and financial resources, general management, information technology management and how they impact upon a business. Importantly, we take a strategic perspective on business and management and help you to develop the skills to contribute to major decisions made by organisations about their future. Such decisions are often centred on technology. You are not required to have a background in information technology since applicants are welcomed from any discipline and a wide range of job roles. Many entrants to an MBA in Information Technology have a science or technology qualification so it is not necessary that you have studied business or management before.
