Course content

Our MSc Business Information Management programme offers a strong and fairly unique combination of practical, analytical and theoretical courses. It will build your expertise and provide comprehensive training across business management and software engineering.

The programme’s emphasis is not on computer programming but on developing relevant analytical and project management skills to ensure you can become an excellent communicator / manager operating between hard-core software developers and business managers.

Students can specialise in areas like e-commerce, online learning and IT project management. The programme studies IT, but does not require students to design programs or write software.

This approach provides our computer science graduates with the best possible prospects for pursing a research, software requirements engineer, business and IT analytics, or IT journalism career.
