It takes a multidisciplinary approach being taught by experts from both the business and computing schools.

  • Practice-oriented teaching, with real-world case studies and regular guest lectures by entrepreneurs, managers and developers
  • Learning direct from IBM specialists through our special teaching partnership with IBM
  • A ten-week company-based consultancy project, where you tackle a live issue for a real client
