This Masters course has been designed to equip computing, computing in business and graduates from a related discipline, with the higher level skills to analyse, model, design, evaluate and manage information systems (IS) successfully within an organisation.
IS as a discipline is a combination of IT systems, business analysis, organisational and management theory, psychology and sociology that have found their home in information systems. This is largely because these diverse areas are now required in increasingly complex organisational environments.
An organisation’s critical work systems are linked to the Information Systems that supports them. In the context of this course we assume the term ‘information system’ involves computer technology. However, the course places more emphasis on the human and organisational aspects of IS than on the computer systems that may form part of them. During this course, you’ll have access to:
- Specialist computer packages
- Lab facilities available 24/7
Graduates from this course should possess the necessary skills to be able to manage operational change. This will allow you to compete particularly strongly for management positions that bridge the perceived business/IT gap, such as in project management, change management and business systems analysis, design and management.
