Course content

This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering an additional 6 month placement opportunity, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students with limited experience to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree.

Information Systems (IS) as a discipline is a combination of Information Technology (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. Information systems are designed to collect, process, store, and distribute information.

This course has been designed to equip graduates from computing, computing in business and related disciplines, with the advanced level skills to analyse, model, design, evaluate and manage information systems successfully within an organisation.

In the context of this course we assume the term ‘information systems (IS)’ involves computer technology. However, the course places some emphasis on the human and organisational aspects of information systems rather than on the computer systems that may form part of them. During this course, you’ll have access to:

  • Computer packages
  • Lab facilities available 24/7

On completion of the course you should possess the necessary skills to be able to manage operational change. This will allow you to compete for management positions that bridge the perceived business/IT gap, such as project management, change management and business systems analysis, design and management.

Students studying this course will also be provided with access to the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) resources during their studies with us.
