Course content

MSc Management and Information Systems: Change and Development aims to train `hybrid managers' capable of understanding both the job of management in its organisational setting, and the role, management and jargon of information, information systems and information technology.

It intends to help close the gap of knowledge, skills, culture and language that exists between functional managers and information systems professionals - a gap that results in the majority of information systems, including e-government, e-commerce, and e-development systems, under-performing or becoming failures.

You'll therefore graduate in a strong position to lead the successful development and implementation of new information systems in a wide range of organisations. By the course's end, you will have been provided with:

  • Conceptual frameworks to understand the role of management of information, of information technology and of information systems in organisations;
  • New knowledge and skills to help in the effective planning, development implementation and management of information systems;
  • New knowledge and skills to help in the effective management and change of organisations.
