Course content

Our online MSc in Information Systems Management aims to provide a bridge between technology and management, giving you the knowledge and skills you need to be an effective manager in an Information Systems-rich environment.

It is appropriate for those moving into or already occupying managerial positions in an IT-related field.

Its core and elective modules will update your theoretical and practical knowledge of Computer Science, for example in Software Engineering or Systems Analysis. At the same time, it will develop the business skills traditionally covered by an MBA, such as Managing People and Project Management.

Programme outlineThe programme has seven core modules, including Computer Structures, which covers the foundations of computer science, and four management modules. The student then chooses two electives in computing, enabling them to specialise according to their particular needs. The electives are followed by a dissertation.

Each module lasts eight weeks and it is possible to take a break of three weeks between modules, if work or other commitments demand it. By taking one module at a time, you can explore a specific subject in depth without distractions.
