Course content

Our MSc Information Management and Business Technology programme has been designed with partners from industry to produce graduates who understand the professional, managerial and technical dimensions of information management and business technology.

Information management is a critical success factor affecting almost any organization. In today's digital age, the speedy and accurate sharing of the right information to the right people is essential for success. It is an aspect of business management that cuts across business functions and has multiple implications for the challenges facing organizations today, from harnessing big data, to managing employees and complying with data protection legislation.

Our MSc Information Management and Business Technology programme will enable you to develop key skills that employers value, including managing business relationships, IT systems, data science (including python programming) and information architecture to name a few. It is designed to develop you into a ‘hybrid’ manager who is able to bridge the gap between technical and managerial perspectives and is equipped with the technical, professional and management knowledge and skills needed by employers.

You will be taught by experts in information management who ensure that all teaching is informed by the latest commercial best practice and academic research. We take pride in teaching you how relevant and inspiring research can be used in practice to solve real world problems. The use of guest lecturers from industry and not-for-profit organisations helps to embed this real-world perspective.

Our MSc Information Management and Business Technology programme is ideal for graduates who would like a career in IT service management, business and media analytics, big data and competitive intelligence.
