This is achieved through a series of modules oriented around three themes: Information Systems; Professional and Consulting Skills; and Innovation and Software Development. Students learn to focus on business deliverables and business interactions through an integrated project which runs across multiple modules of the programme. Students also work on a group project to develop an innovative software idea into a prototype and draw up a viable business plan. Mentoring input from selected industry practitioners is provided
