Course content

The University of Liverpool Management School is one of an elite group of institutions worldwide to be AACSB-Accredited.

This programme provides you with a wide range of specialist skills and knowledge in Digital Business Enterprise Management, and includes the opportunity to develop operations management skills.

The Management School was one of the first to join the SAP University Alliances programme, where trained faculty members help students to better connect business and IT concepts to practice, and prepare them to be the next generation leaders, designers, developers, data scientists, makers, and entrepreneurs who will drive the digital transformation of business. Students also have the opportunity to earn an industry certification in SAP technologies to position themselves for outstanding careers in the SAP ecosystem, including with top implementation partners.

Students can apply their newly acquired knowledge in this subject area through the main project which could be research based or industry linked — the latter providing exposure to contemporary digital business enterprise practices.

The objective of the programme is to empower our students and prepare them for careers and growth in the digital enterprise.
